VKC Diagnosis

  • No specific diagnostic criteria have been established1

    Patients often have VKC for 3–4 years before being diagnosed2

  • VKC is differentiated from other ocular allergic conditions through a comprehensive clinical history and ophthalmic examination3

  • Regional prevalence data suggest warm weather conditions may not be absolutely necessary for development of the disease3
