PURPOSE We aimed to report the ocular manifestations observed in patients with psoriasis. METHODS Patients were included and referred to our ophthalmology clinic from dermatology clinics of Universidade do Estado do Pará between October 2013 and August 2014. Clinical interviews were conducted to identify relevant epidemiological data, clinical features, and treatment details, and data were recorded using the same protocol. Subsequent dermatological examinations were performed and disease…

Clinical Profile, Ocular Morbidity and Visual Loss in Psoriasis

Ophthalmic clinical features, signs and symptoms in psoriasis may be subtle and a complete ophthalmic evaluation is required both for early detection of ocular abnormalities and complications and a multidisciplinary approach is required to reduce ocular morbidity in the active phase of Psoriasis during and after treatment in patients.

Clinical profile, ocular morbidity and visual loss in psoriasis: Experience in a multispeciality hospital

Ocular signs and symptoms in psoriasis may be subtle and overlooked, hence complete ophthalmic examination is recommended for early detection of ocular abnormalities and visual morbidity.

A Study on Ocular Morbidity among Patients with Psoriasis Visiting a Tertiary Care Hospital in Karnataka, Southern India

Ocular morbidity was observed in 80% of the patients with psoriasis which increased with increasing duration and increasing PASI score, and it is important to screen patients with Psoriasis for ocular comorbidities so as to prevent sight-threatening complications.

Evaluation of the prevalence of ocular symptoms in psoriatic patients

The type of psoriasis most predisposing to ocular disorders is psoriatic arthritis, and women are more likely to develop ophthalmic dysfunction, which may be associated with autoimmune reactions, more often found in females.

Psoriasis beyond the skin: Ophthalmological changes (Review).

The aim of the present review was to emphasize the importance of regular eye examination for patients with psoriasis, either those receiving biological treatment or those not receiving treatment, in order to diagnose and manage the disease appropriately.

Evaluation of ocular psoriasis with meibography

Ocular surface disease in psoriatic patients in a developing country

Compared to controls, ocular surface of psoriatic patients showed more eyelid margin abnormalities, higher meibomian gland loss and lower tear film break-up time and the estimated odds ratio for dry eyes in the psoriasis group was 2.2.

Identifying and Treating Ocular Manifestations in Psoriasis

The objective of this article was to review the most common ocular conditions that affect psoriatic patients, when to consider referral to an ophthalmologist, and to summarize the adverse ocular effects of current psoriasis treatments.

Ocular Manifestations in Colombian Patients with Systemic Rheumatologic Diseases

It is crucial to be aware of the most common ophthalmic manifestations among the different rheumatologic diseases in the population, to offer early specialist referral and timely treatment.



Psoriasis and the eye: Prevalence of eye disease in Singaporean Asian patients with psoriasis

It is suggested that eye complications are common in Asian patients with psoriasis and eye symptoms should be elicited during history taking, and an LS‐PGA score of more than 5 should prompt referral for ophthalmological examination.

Psoriatic Eye Manifestations

Psoriatic eye findings may include conjunctivitis, dry eye, episcleritis, and uveitis, all of which may precede articular changes, and Referral to an ophthalmologist is essential for definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Psoriatic uveitis: a distinct clinical entity?

Epidemiology of Psoriasis in a Clinic From North India.

Clinical and epidemiological data on 782 patients of psoriasis collected from a clinic in north India is presented, finding that there was a male preponderance and Severity of the disease was same in both sexes.

Ophthalmological manifestations in patients with psoriasis.

The most important finding was iridocyclitis (uveitis) which was present in 3 out of 7 patients suffering from psoriatic arthritis.

The peripheral corneal melting syndrome and psoriasis: coincidence or association?

The features of the PCMS developing in an elderly woman with long‐standing psoriasis are highlighted to increase awareness of its significance, and it is hypothesized that an association may exist between the two conditions.

The data strongly argue against a dose-dependent increase in the risk of cataract or other lens abnormality in association with PUVA therapy in a cohort most of whose members the authors believe usually used recommended eye protection, and the higher incidence and prevalence of ocular lens pathology in their cohort compared to groups without psoriasis.

Tear film and meibomian gland functions in psoriasis.

Findings suggested an obstructive type of meibomian gland dysfunction in psoriatic patients which might result from increased turnover of the epithelia lining the meibOMian gland duct.
