The history of the recognition and characterization of the corneal manifestations of vernal disease is recounted. A revised classification of the 'remote' corneal signs is proposed. Forty cases of vernal plaque seen recently in London are analysed. Various parameters are discussed, and the usefulness of superficial keratectomy in the management of plaque is established. New histological findings in plaque are mentioned; these will be fully described in another paper.
