What Is Salzman's Nodule Degeneration?

Salzmann’s nodular degeneration (SND) is a slowly progressive corneal degeneration that has been associated with ocular surface inflammation and trauma but also can be idiopathic. Management includes observation in asymptomatic patients, medical treatment with lubricants or topical medications, and surgical treatment with superficial keratectomy.

How Is The Surgery Like?

A procedure where the nodule is removed in a controlled surgical way. Surgical removal of Salzmann’s nodules is fast and performed in an outpatient manner. Most patients do not experience any discomfort and can resume normal activities, with few limitations rapidly.
