Ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) consists of a wide range of conjuctival and corneal lesions ranging from dysplastic lesions to invasive squamous cell carcinoma. A number of risk factors, including genetic predisposition, immunosuppression, HPV infection, ultraviolet exposure and smoking, have been associated with the appearance of OSSN. The authors discuss the recent advances in the management of OSSN, and describe surgical techniques and medical approaches to treat this disease. The authors believe that ultra-high-resolution optical coherence tomography will provide invaluable help in the diagnosis of surface lesions and their recurrences in the near future.
