Recurrent Epithelia Erosion Syndrome is a common, recurrent condition caused by abnormal
epithelial adhesion to the underlying basal lamina. The spontaneous breakdown of the corneal
epithelium can lead to the sudden onset of ocular pain, blurred vision, tearing, and photophobia,
typically upon awakening.
In this presentation, we will look at some of the causes for this condition eg: trauma, diabetes,
how it presents itself and some of the symptoms to look for, how to identify the syndrome and the
examination techniques required, how to manage/treat the symptoms and give an overview of the
prognosis and discuss the complications associated with treatments.
