Vernal keratoconjunctivitis: Signs, symptoms and therapeutic management
Allergic eye conditions are particularly common anterior eye problems and their incidence seems to be increasing. Vernal keratoconjunctivitis is a potentially severe, chronic, allergic condition, that typically occurs in males, commending between eight and 12 years of age. The cornea may ultimately be involved and visual disturbances can follow. Here we briefly review the current understanding of why vernal keratoconjunctivitis occurs, and provide some management options when these patients present to your practice.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
