Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic dermatological disease with multiple extra cutaneous association and eye is one among them. Psoriasis, as a part of its  disease process can affect  any part of eye ranging from simple eyelid involvement to vision threatening involvement of macula. Not only the disease process but the drugs used for treatment of psoriasis can also cause ocular morbidity which has to be screened.


Blepharoconjunctvitis is the most common manifestation seen among all  the  other  ocular manifestation. Uveitis is the  least  commonest but  a potential sight threatening manifestation seen in both symptomatic and asymptomatics. Detecting this potential complication early and treating promptly can prevent irreversible vision loss.
