Abstract

Purpose: To investigate conjunctival sensation in patients with scleritis. Methods: Retrospective cross-sectional study of patients with scleritis. Conjunctival sensation was tested by Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer in four quadrants of the bulbar conjunctiva plus the area(s) of active or previously active inflammation; sensation was compared with the contralateral eye. Results: Of 28 patients with scleritis, nine had active scleritis and 19 had inactive scleritis. Eleven patients had a systemic autoimmune condition and five had infectious scleritis. The mean conjunctival sensation score of areas of inactive scleritis was significantly less than that of corresponding normal areas in the contralateral eye (p
