During and following marrow transplantation the eye can be damaged in many ways. The conjunctivae can be affected by certain chemotherapeutic agents and by viruses, the lacrimal glands can be involved by chronic GVHD, and there can be retinal hemorrhage and choroiditis (see above). In addition, there can be longterm effects, mostly affecting the lens.
