We describe a series of four cases with ocular surface lesions, where optical coherence tomography (OCT) proved to be a useful tool for diagnosis and/or management. These cases included pterygium with cyst, suspected ocular surface squamous neoplasia, nodular scleritis and an inclusion cyst. The ability of OCT to reveal the internal characteristics and the true location of lesion may help, in judicious decisions regarding excisional biopsy in future.
