Abstract

Although there are no randomised trials directly comparing topical chemotherapeutic agents mitomycin-C, 5-fluorouracil, and interferon-α2b, published studies indicate equal efficacy of these agents for treatment of non-invasive ocular surface squamous neoplasia (80%-88%). 5-Fluorouracil may be preferred, given low incidence of serious side effects and low cost to the patient.
