Removal of abnormal cells from surface of eye

This consent form can be used for OSSN or CIN excision. Here is the first paragraph. Click on “download” to get the form.

You have abnormal cells on the surface of your eye. Cells grow on the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is the clear tissue that covers the white part of your eye. These cells can become abnormal or turn into cancer cells. There are two medical terms for these abnormal cells. Ophthalmologists call them OSSN (ocular surface squamous neoplasia) or CIN (conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia). When the cells become abnormal or turn into cancer, they need to be removed.
