A case is presented of hypertensive retinopathy seen in a patient with generalized scleroderma. Retinal changes are not generally found in scleroderma, which makes this case significant. Other systemic and ocular manifestations seen in scleroderma (some of which were present in this patient) are reviewed. 
Corneal and Other Ocular Changes in Progressive Systemic Scleroderma
The ocular and systemic complications are reported of two patients having progressive systemic scleroderma, one patient had corneal marginal furrowing with neovascularisation and the other a bilateral diffuse opacification of the anterior corneAL stroma.
Adie's Tonic Pupil in Systemic Sclerosis: A Rare Association
This paper is an effort to unravel whether the tonic pupil and systemic sclerosis are an association by chance (which may be the case) or systemic sclerosis is the source of the Tonic pupil.
Gender and Ocular Manifestations of Connective Tissue Diseases and Systemic Vasculitides
The ocular findings in various connective tissue diseases and systemic vasculitides are reviewed and gender differences in each disease are highlighted and it is found that dry eyes affect women nine times more than men.
[Evaluation of Changes in Corneal Biomechanics in Patients with Systemic Sclerosis].
A distinct pre-existing significant negative correlation between age and CH and CRF values in patients with SSc could be due to slight regression of the viscous components and diminution of corneal damping capacity.
Klinische Untersuchung zur Veränderung der kornealen Biomechanik bei Patienten mit Systemischer Sklerodermie
In the course of the disease SSc leading to various alterations in connective tissue, which can also involve corneal tissue, CCT becomes significantly thinner and simultaneously partially loses elastic properties and gains viscosity, accounts for reduced IOP values with dynamic contour tonometry as well as with ORA-tonometry.
