PHOTO ESSAY: “New” Red Eye – A Case of Conjunctival Intraepithelial Neoplasia

Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) covers a wide range of ocular diseases that affect the squamous epithelial cells on the surface of the eye. This includes conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia, corneal epithelial dysplasia, squamous cell carcinoma, and mucoepidermoid carcinoma. Anterior segment OCT can be used to differentiate between CIN and other benign conjunctival lesions, by evaluating for epithelial activity, stromal invasion, and corneal involvement.

PHOTO ESSAY: Unilateral Christmas Tree Cataract

A Christmas tree cataract is a rare, unique form of lens opacity. It typically appears as a group of several highly refractile colorful opacities that resemble ornaments decorating a Christmas tree, giving rise to its descriptive name. They are usually asymptomatic and discovered on routine examination. This case describes a patient with a Christmas tree cataract in the right eye.
