Dichotomous data The primary outcome of interest, the proportion of patients with complete resolution of hordeolum at seven days after diagnosis, will be analyzed as a dichotomous variable: One review author will enter the data into Review Manager Version 5.

Local administration of antibiotics can also be by injection. Internal incisions may be made vertically to reduce the area of the cornea swept by the irregular healing tissue during blinking and prevent lid contracture that may contribute to malposition; external incisions may be made horizontally for optimal post-operative cosmesis.
