Abstract

In most ophthalmology practices, we come across patients who are senile, as senile cataract is the among the common causes of visual impairment in the adult population. It is imperative that we give due importance to the ocular surface in these patients while treating the patients as postoperatively, they may not be satisfied if the ocular surface is not healthy despite best possible correction. Conjunctivochalasis is one such entity that is often too may a times ignored and untreated. The ophthalmologists should be aware of this condition and manage it appropriately.
