• The ocular histologic records of all hospital and private pathologic laboratories in metropolitan Brisbane, Australia, were surveyed from 1980 through 1989. One hundred thirty-nine cases of histologically proven dysplasia, carcinoma in situ, and invasive carcinoma of the cornea and conjunctiva were identified. The incidence of these conditions in the area surveyed is estimated to be 1.9 per 100000 per year averaged for 10 years.
