These include cases of chronic allergic conjunctivitis unresponsive to routine treatments (OT, November 12 2010), advanced presentations of VKC (again unresponsive to mast cell stabilizer treatments), ocular rosacea, episcleritis (of various aetiologies) and, of course, intraocular inflammations of the anterior segment associated with the iris and anterior uvea.
