CONCLUSION: Since surgical excision of the conjunctival pseudomembranes alone in patients with LC does not protect from recurrences, the perioperative administration of FFP, both systemically and topically improves the outcome. Furthermore, the long-term application of topical FFP preparations seems to prevent recurrences and has a protective effect on the vision of these patients.
