Abstract The authors studied the epidemiology of external ocular infections and the therapeutic efficacy of topical ciprofloxacin and norfloxacin in the treatment of conjunctivitis and blepharitis. Signs and symptoms in two study-group (ciprofloxacin group A = 95 patients and norfloxacin group B = 95 patients) as well as the microbiological data obtained from the conjunctival swab before and after treatment were considered. The clinical and bacteriological success rate in the two study-groups was respectively 91% (group A) and 83% (group B). The results of the present study confirm the therapeutic efficacy of topical fluoroquinolones in the treatment of bacterial conjunctivitis and blepharitis.
