Bacterial keratitis is a common clinical condition that may lead to visual impairment if untreated. We report our clinical experience of treating bacterial keratitis with levofloxacin (LVFX) 1.5% ophthalmic solution in 10 patients. Eight patients with confirmed bacterial keratitis received monotherapy with LVFX 1.5% and two patients received an additional antibiotic. All patients demonstrated progressive improvement in keratitis and visual acuity over 1 to 2 weeks of treatment. There were no treatment-emergent adverse events. LVFX 1.5% solution is an effective and well-tolerated option for the treatment of bacterial keratitis.
