Mucus in the healthy and diseased eye



Mucus in the healthy and diseased eye



Transactions of the Ophthalmological Societies of the United Kingdom 97(1): 1-7



Mucous glycoproteins play an important role in maintaining the normal surface of the eye. Changes in the physical properties and chemical composition occur in disease with increased viscosity and a shift in the type of acid glycoprotein towards a predominance of sulphomucin causing some of the distinctive clinical features seen in dry eyes, superior limbic keratitis (SLK), vernal catarrh, and neuroparalytic keratitis.
