Easy Way To Treat Conjunctivochalasis With Liquid Nitrogen

February 2, 2012

OSN: Conjunctivochalasis is more common and symptomatic than we think, and there are many ways to treat conjunctivochalsis. Dr. Fraunfelder describes his method where he simply applies liquid nitrogen to the bulbar conjunctiva. This causes scarring and the conjunctiva binds firmly to the sclera and does not bunch up anymore at the margin. It’s easier than excising and applying amniotic membrane, though fibrin glue has really made this technique a lot quicker. It would be nice to see a head-to-head article which clarifies the best approach.
