Author information

Division of Ophthalmology, Kansai Rosai Hospital, Hyogo, Japan.


We treated 12 patients with superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis with topical vitamin A (retinol palmitate) eyedrops. After a follow-up period of at least three months, this therapy was found to be effective, to a varying extent, in ten patients (83%). Superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis lesions did not recur in these patients as long as topical application was continued.
