The appropriate therapy for Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid includes oral medications and sometimes surgery. Because dry eye syndrome is often associated with MMP, dry eye therapy might be beneficial. Special gas permeable contact lenses are also beneficial.

What are common vision problems in children?
HealthyWomen answeredThe most common eye problems in children are caused by defects in the way the eyes focus light on the retina, the part of the eye that sends visual information to the brain. These defects, called refractive errors, cause a number of vision problems, including myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. However, these problems can almost always be corrected with either eyeglasses or contact lenses.
Nearsightedness typically develops around 8 years of age and worsens until age 15 or 16. Until recently, wearing soft contact lenses was thought to possibly accelerate the development of nearsightedness in children more than other vision correction options. But recent research has reversed this long-held myth.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
What are pterygium and pinguecula?
American Academy of Ophthalmology answered
Pterygium (pronounced tur-IJ-ee-um) and pinguecula (pronounced pin-GWEK-yoo-la) are growths on the cornea (the clear front window of the eye) and the conjunctiva — the thin, filmy membrane that covers the white part of your eye (sclera).
Both types of growths are believed to be caused by dry eye and environmental elements such as wind, dust and ultraviolet (UV) light.
