Purpose: Since there is a lack of clear information regarding the benefit to combine supportive therapies (such as artificial tears) to mitomycin C (MMC) in the treatment of ocular surface neoplasia, the primary purpose of the study was to evaluate hyaluronic acid eye drops and hyaluronic acid-conjugated lactobionic acid (LACTOyal FREE) eye drops as supportive therapy. Methods: Retrospective evaluation of patients with ocular surface squamous neoplasia or conjunctival melanocytic tumor treated with MMC, who had used also artificial tears as supportive treatment. A 6-month follow-up with evaluation of subjective and objective tests for ocular surface integrity was conducted. Results: A total of 35 patients were analyzed, most of them with squamous disease (71.4%). The break-up time (BUT), Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) and Schirmer test values showed a significant difference at any time point with overall population. No statistical difference was found among subgroups (Lactoyal vs No Lactoyal). Conclusion: The use of an ancillary therapy based on hyaluronic acid allows to improve both subjective and objective ocular parameters, reducing MMC induced adverse effects. Meantime, hyaluronic acid-conjugated lactobionic acid eye drops highlighted the same advantages with a more positive trend in OSDI results.
