    Clinical Features of Pingueculitis Revealed by Anterior Segment Optical Coherence Tomography Findings

    Purpose: To investigate clinical features and treatment outcomes of pingueculitis with morphological assessments using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (AS-OCT). Methods: In this retrospective observational study, we examined 22 eyes of 22 patients with pingueculitis . All patients were treated with the same 2-week course of prednisolone acetate 1% drops four times per day. The clinical parameters evaluated were surface dimensions determined by slitlamp biomicroscopy, cross-sectional dimensions determined by AS-OCT, and symptom scores determined by patient surveys. Pretreatment and 1-month posttreatment values were compared with Wilcoxon signed-rank tests. Patients were followed up to 1 year after treatment. Results: Twenty-two eyes from ...
