To report four cases of oculosporidiosis associated with scleral thinning and staphyloma formation, including recurrent bulbar conjunctival oculosporidiosis, retrospective reviews of case records of four patients with bulbar conjunctival oculosporidiosis were undertaken. All cases were managed with excision of growth followed by diathermy and scleral patch graft. Box sutures were used for securing the graft in place, followed by oral dapsone therapy. This case series describes successful management of oculosporidiosis and associated scleral ectasia even in a recurrent case. It also highlights the utility of box sutures for securing scleral patch grafts.
