Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC)

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) is an atopic condition of the external ocular surface. It mostly affects young males in hot and dry climates. It is characterized by severe itching, photophobia, foreign body sensation, mucous discharge, blepharospasm, and blurring of vision. Removal of any and all possible allergens as well as conservative management are considered as first line of treatment. Other than that Mast cell stabilizers and antihistamine are also employed.
