Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Ten eyes with progressing Mooren's or similar ulcers were treated by excising a 3 to 4 mm ring of limbal conjunctiva adjacent to the ulcer. Eight eyes healed within 3 weeks. Seven of these eyes have remained healed, while one eye has had repeated ulcers which healed when re-treated with conjunctival exicision.
