The average area of bared choroid and sclera was greater in normal-tension glaucoma (5.8 arbitrary units of area) than in ocular hypertension (1.4 units). Myopic eyes were(More)
Although surgical excision, with or without adjunctive cryotherapy, is an accepted method of managing conjunctival squamous cell carcinoma, histologically verified tumor-free surgical margins cannot be assured by excision alone.
