A description is given of the case of a 50 yr old woman with squamous cell carcinoma of the conjunctiva with corneal invasion. Since no intraocular extension of the tumor is present, the possibility exists that such an eye may be saved by excision of the tumor followed by a corneoscleral graft. Radical surgery is not indicated in this lesion. A number of benign tumors have been confused with squamous cell carcinoma, particularly when it occurs on the eyelids.
