An elderly patient with limbal growth in the left eye was diagnosed by impression cytology as ocular surface squamous neoplasia (OSSN) and subsequently treated with topical interferon α 2b (IFN-α 2b). Complete gross and histopathological resolution was seen by 3 months. Impression cytology and topical IFN-α 2b drops are simple, powerful, and affordable tools to manage OSSN. Flu-like syndrome in the first few days was the only adverse effect noted.
