Blepharospasm-oromandibular dystonia syndrome (Brueghel's syndrome). A variant of adult-onset torsion dystonia? (1/282)

Thirty-nine patients with the idiopathic blepharospasm-oromandibular dystonia syndrome are described. All presented in adult life, usually in the sixth decade; women were more commonly affected than men. Thirteen had blepharospasm alone, nine had oromandibular dystonia alone, and 17 had both. Torticollis or dystonic writer's camp preceded the syndrome in two patients. Eight other patients developed toritocollis, dystonic posturing of the arms, or involvement of respiratory muscles. No cause or hereditary basis for the illness were discovered. The evidence to indicate that this syndrome is due to an abnormality of extrapyramidal function, and that it is another example of adult-onset focal dystonia akin to spasmodic torticollis and dystonic writer's cramp, is discussed.  (+info)

Multiple eyelid cysts resembling apocrine hidrocystomas in three Persian cats and one Himalayan cat. (2/282)

Multiple eyelid cysts were evaluated and treated in four cats. Surgical removal of the cysts was performed in two cats. Histopathologic examination revealed multilocular cystic structures of various size. The cysts were lined by cuboidal to columnar cells with papillary or cystic projections into the cyst lumen. Periodic acid-Schiff-positive, diastase-resistant granules were seen within the apical cytoplasm of many of the cells. The eyelid masses in these cats resembled apocrine hidrocystomas in human beings, both clinically and on histopathologic examination.  (+info)

Incidence of trichiasis in a cohort of women with and without scarring. (3/282)

BACKGROUND: Blindness from trachoma is a significant problem for many underdeveloped countries. While active trachoma is common in children, trichiasis, the potentially blinding sequella, develops in adulthood and affects mainly women. Little is known about factors associated with the development of trichiasis. METHODS: The 7-year incidence of trichiasis and its association with ocular chlamydia infection was examined in a cohort of women from a hyperendemic area. A total of 4,932 women 18 years and older, living in 11 villages in Central Tanzania, were examined in 1989. A follow-up examination in 1996 was performed on all women with scars living in six of the 11 villages and on a random sample of women without scars from the same villages. Trachoma was graded clinically, chlamydia infection was ascertained at follow-up using polymerase chain reaction-enzyme immunoassay (PCR-EIA). RESULTS: A total 523 of the women with scars and 503 of the women without scars were re-examined. Forty-eight of the women with scars (incidence, 9.2%) and three of the women without scars (0.6%) developed trichiasis in the 7-year period. Prevalence of chlamydia infection was significantly higher in the group with scars (11.7% versus 7.1%). Trichiasis cases were more likely to be older, and to have chlamydia infection at follow-up odds ratio (95% confidence interval) 2.5 (1.1-5.7). CONCLUSION: The 7-year incidence rate in the population with scars was high, over 1% per year. Ocular chlamydia infection was more common in the group with scars at baseline and was also associated with being a trichiasis case, suggesting the importance of potentially long-term chlamydia infection in the progression to trichiasis. Antibiotic distribution programmes for trachoma control should include women with scars.  (+info)

Phakomatous choristoma of the eyelid. (4/282)

This article describes the first report of phakomatous choristoma of the eyelid in Korea. A six-month-old boy underwent excision of a congenital inferonasal orbital mass arising from the left lower lid. A dermoid cyst was suspected, however a diagnosis of phakomatous choristoma was made following conventional histology. An immunohistochemical study of this rare benign congenital tumor was conducted. The cuboidal epithelial cells comprising this choristoma showed strongly positive cytoplasmic staining with S-100 protein and vimentin. They also showed focally positive staining with a neuron-specific enolase, while they showed no immunoreactivity to cytokeratin or epithelial membrane antigen. The results of the immunohistochemical study support the conclusion that this tumor is of lenticular anlage origin.  (+info)

Palpebral myiasis. (5/282)

Myiasis is most prevalent in Mexico, central and south America, tropical Africa, and the southwestern United States. Although dermal myiasis is rare in most of the United States, it is a disorder that may be seen in international travelers. In the United States, external myiasis is usually caused by the cattle botfly. We report here a case of ophthalmomyiasis involving the left upper eyelid of a child. We examined a six-year-old boy who presented to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary (MEEI) in September 1998. He complained of persistent swelling of his left upper eyelid for the previous ten days. The edema and erythema were unresponsive to warm compresses and oral antibiotics. Ocular examination revealed a mild preseptal cellulitis of the left upper eyelid with a small draining fistula. On slit-lamp examination, we found one larva protruding intermittently from the fistula site. The larva was extracted with forceps, wrapped in a moist towel and sent in a jar to the parasitology laboratory. The specimen was identified as a Cuterebra larva by a parasitologist at the Harvard School of Public Health. One week later, the patient's eyelid edema and erythema had completely resolved.  (+info)

Regulation of MMP-9 activity in human tear fluid and corneal epithelial culture supernatant. (6/282)

PURPOSE: To evaluate human corneal epithelial culture supernatant and tear fluid for the presence of activators and inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9, MMP-3, and tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase (TIMP)-1, respectively, and to evaluate the effect of MMP-3 on the activation of MMP-9 in these specimens. METHODS: Unstimulated tear fluid was collected from patients with ocular rosacea and normal control subjects. Levels of MMP-9, MMP-3, and TIMP-1 were determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and/or immunoblot analysis. Supernatants from primary human corneal epithelial cultures and human tear fluid were incubated with MMP-3. Cultured epithelial cells and their supernatants were also treated with doxycycline before MMP-3 was added. Gelatin zymography was used to identify activated 82-kDa MMP-9. MMP-9 activity was assessed with a commercial MMP-9 activity assay system. RESULTS: MMP-9 and TIMP-1 were detected at significantly higher concentrations in rosacea-affected than in normal tear fluids. MMP-3 was detected exclusively in the tear fluid of patients with ocular rosacea who had corneal epithelial disease. Treatment of the supernatant and tear fluid with MMP-3 resulted in two bands with molecular weights of 92 kDa and 82 kDa, representing pro-MMP-9 and activated MMP-9, respectively. Doxycycline added to the conditioned media did not affect activation of MMP-9 by MMP-3. However, 24-hour treatment of corneal epithelial cultures with doxycycline resulted in a lower concentration and activity of MMP-9 in their supernatants. CONCLUSIONS: MMP-9 and TIMP-1 are produced by the human corneal epithelium and are present in tear fluid. MMP-3 alone is sufficient to activate MMP-9 on the ocular surface. Doxycycline does not directly inhibit this activation by MMP-3, but it decreases MMP-9 activity when added to corneal epithelial cultures.  (+info)

Haemorrhage and risk factors associated with retrobulbar/peribulbar block: a prospective study in 1383 patients. (7/282)

Patients undergoing intraocular surgery are elderly and may have disease or be receiving medication which increases the risk of haemorrhage. We interviewed 1383 consecutive patients scheduled for eye surgery requiring retrobulbar/peribulbar block about their use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, oral steroids and warfarin. A history of diabetes mellitus and globe axial length was noted. Medial peribulbar and inferolateral retrobulbar blocks were performed by three specialists and six doctors in training. The ensuing haemorrhages were graded as follows: 1 = spot ecchymosis; 2 = lid ecchymosis involving half of the lid surface area or less; 3 = lid ecchymosis all around the eye, no increase in intraocular pressure; 4 = retrobulbar haemorrhage with increased intraocular pressure. Acetylsalicylic acid was taken by 482 (35%) patients, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs by 260 (19%) and warfarin by 76 (5.5%). Lid haemorrhages (grades 1-3) were observed in 55 patients (4.0%); in 33 of these patients the haemorrhages were spotlike (grade 1). No grade 4 haemorrhages occurred. The preoperative use of acetylsalicylic acid, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or warfarin, whether or not they had been discontinued, did not predispose to haemorrhage associated with retrobulbar/peribulbar block.  (+info)

Histoplasmosis of the eyelids--a case report. (8/282)

Systemic histoplasmosis manifesting as an ulcerative eyelid lesion is rare. We describe a successfully treated case of histoplasmosis who presented with an eroding ulcer in the lid.  (+info)

Purpose: : To describe and present the results of a surgical technique in patients with floppy eyelid syndrome. This disease is based on upper eyelid tarsal laxity and incomplete eyelid closure during sleep (nocturnal lagophthalmos), blepharochalasis, upper eyelash ptosis, ocular surface disorders, chronic papillary conjunctivitis and a soft, rubbery, floppy, and easily everted upper eyelid. Methods: : 2 patients with floppy eyelid syndrome were treated in both eyes with a bilateral full-thickness resection of a pentagon shaped strip of the upper eyelid. Histological studies showed papillary conjunctivitis with cistic degeneration and squamous metaplastic changes in meibomian glands and a loss of elastin in the tarsal tissue, which may contribute to the laxity of the tarsus in this disorder. Results: : There were no complications during and after surgery and the 2 patients had relief of symptoms and good cosmetic and functional results at follow up (13 and 16 months). Conclusions: : An ...
Eyelid surgery is a specialized form of cosmetic surgery. Eyelid surgery can include blepharoplasty surgery (cosmetic eyelid surgery), ptosis surgery (eyelid surgery which lifts a droopy lid), canthoplasty surgery (eyelid surgery to tighten a lower lid) and other procedures. Not every plastic surgeon performs all kinds of eyelid surgery. Ophthalmic plastic surgeons (oculoplastic surgeons) are specialty trained in all forms of eyelid surgery. These are board certified ophthalmologists with separate sub-specialty training in cosmetic surgery of the forehead/eyebrows, eyelids and midface (cheeks), and reconstructive surgery of the same areas tear ducts and orbits. There are approximately 500 such trained surgeons in the United States today. These are the most experienced and best trained surgeons to perform your eyelid surgery. It is very important you understand the value of specialized surgeons when pursuing eyelid surgery. The eyes are the central feature of the face. You only want the best ...
Blepharochalasis is an inflammation of the eyelid that is characterized by exacerbations and remissions of eyelid edema, which results in a stretching and subsequent atrophy of the eyelid tissue, leading to the formation of redundant folds over the lid margins. It typically affects only the upper eyelids, and may be unilateral as well as bilateral. Complications of blepharochalasis may include conjunctival hyperemia (excessive blood flow through the moist tissues of the orbit), chemosis, entropion, ectropion, and ptosis. Blepharochalasis is idiopathic in most cases, i.e., the cause is unknown. Systemic conditions linked to blepharochalasis are renal agenesis, vertebral abnormalities, and congenital heart disease. Blepharochalasis results from recurrent bouts of painless eyelid swelling, each lasting for several days. This is thought to be a form of localized angioedema, or rapid accumulation of fluid in the tissues. Recurrent episodes lead to thin and atrophic skin. Damage to the levator ...

If you are considering eyelid surgery, the cost of the procedure is probably one of your main concerns and considerations. No two eyelid surgeries are the same as every patient has different requirements that will affect the cost. The average eyelid surgery will last anything from 1 to 2 hours and because anaesthetic will be required, the longer your surgery, the more its going to cost. The facility where the operation is performed will also play a role in the cost. Most eyelid surgeries can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000 depending on the surgeon you use for the procedure. Choosing an Eyelid Surgeon Its never wise to choose a surgeon based on price alone. When performed by an inexperienced surgeon, eyelid surgery can lead to complications such as blinking difficulties, dry eyes and even tear duct blockages. Experienced and reputable surgeons dont come cheap and for good reason, which is why most patients want to know whether their eyelid surgery will be covered by Medicare. Medicare & Eyelid
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and wrinkles and fatty deposits that cause puffiness from the eyelids. It reduces bags and dark circles under the eyes, and corrects droopiness of the lower eyelids. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are individuals in good health who have realistic expectations about the outcome. They are usually at least 35 years old and, ideally, nonsmokers. A typical eyelid surgery takes about two hours, when both the upper and lower eyelids are done. Youll receive a local anesthetic and either oral or intravenous sedation. Upper eyelid surgery is usually performed first; incisions are made along the natural folds of the eyelids and the skin is separated so that excess fat, tissue and muscle can be removed. For the lower eyelids, an incision is usually made just below the lashes and excess fatty deposits are removed. In some cases, laser resurfacing may be recommended. While eyelid surgery is a common ...
The appearance of hooded eyelids can be specifically addressed by upper eyelid surgery. This type of procedure is best suited for individuals with significant amounts of loose, sagging skin in the upper eyelids.. Generally, a tiny incision following the natural contour of the upper eyelid and possibly extending to the outer edges will be made. The incision makes it possible for Dr. Elliott to remove or redrape excess skin. Fat may be repositioned or removed while underlying muscles may also be tightened. A standard upper eyelid surgery takes less than one hour to perform.. The majority of patients who undergo an upper eyelid surgery may also need a forehead/brow lift. This has to do with the proximity of the brows and the upper eyelids. A thorough physical assessment and a discussion of your cosmetic goals with Dr. Lavey will help figure out whether or not you need a brow lift with your blepharoplasty.. Healing following eyelid surgery varies from one patient to another. Some may have normal ...

Laser Praxis Eyelid Surgery Clinic Lahore, Pakistan providing upper eyelid and lower eyelid blepharoplasty surgery and beautifying eyelid surgery in reasonable cost by cosmetic surgeons in Pakistan.
Canthoplasty is a specific eyelid surgical procedure aimed at tightening or suspending the lower eyelid. It is both a reconstructive surgery (for eyelid malposition - i.e. lid turns out - ectropion, or lid turns in - entropion), and a cosmetic surgery (to support the lower eyelid during blepharoplasty).. Traditional canthoplasty has been reconstructive in nature and has involved releasing the lower lid from its attachments to bone, shortening it, and the re-securing it to bone. This is an excellent operation for patients with eyelid problems (as mentioned above); however, it can be a frustrating procedure for patients seeking cosmetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). This is because such disruption of the lateral canthus (where the outer part upper and lower eyelids meet) can lead to symptoms such as pain, tenderness, tightness, mal-alignment of the two canthi from one eye to the other, webbing of the canthus and a change in the shape of the canthus (canthal angle becomes rounder or too ...

Through BOPSS, Rebecca Ford and her team completed a UK survey on the provision of eyelid surgery for patients with thyroid eye disease (TED). The conclusions were presented at the 2019 BOPSS meeting.. Provision for this surgery varies depending on the individual CCGs. Before approval is obtained for eyelid surgery, however, most patients will have had to apply for individual funding requirements (IFR), secured prior approval (PA) or met the criteria for a planned procedure with a threshold (PPPwT).. These approvals are usually based on how much the peripheral vision is affected or vision obstructed (in cases of droopy lids or excess skin), or on how dry is the eye (in cases of lid retraction). Only around 2% of CCGs state specifically in their lid-surgery policies that they exempt patients with TED from their eligibility criteria.. No CCGs fund eyelid surgery purely for cosmetic reasons, and most are strict about requiring reasons for surgery over and above appearance-related concerns. However, ...

This procedure solves the dilemma of removal of fat from the lower eyelid that may create a hollow lower eyelid. This procedure has been adopted around the world over the last ten years and involves a lower eyelid incision just beneath the eyelashes, with preservation of fat in the lower eyelid by repositioning the fat to recreate the youthful contours of the lower eyelid cheek region. Additionally, the muscle of the lower eyelid is elevated to further smooth out the aging lower eyelid contours. This procedure is safe and predictable and creates a tremendous rejuvenation of the lower eyelid region. The recovery is longer than with traditional eyelid surgery. The recovery involves an upward slant to the eye for seven to ten days and then often a feeling of tightness for several weeks. Most patients can return to normal work activities in seven to ten days although artificial tears and moisturizing drops to the eye may be needed for up to three or four weeks in the healing phase.. A composite ...

We dont currently feature information about ptosis or eyelid surgery on Better Vision Guide, so I thought Id spend a bit of time in this post discussing it.. Its true that the vast majority of eyelid surgeries, called blepharoplasty or eye lift, are performed for cosmetic purposes. However, correction of a sagging or drooping eyelid can be more problematic than simply making you look a few years older. If the upper eyelid droops far enough, it can cover the pupil, impeding your ability to see (ptosis).. Ptosis can develop as a natural part of the aging process, but it can also be present at birth. Congenital ptosis poses additional risks because it can impair the visual development of children. For instance, lazy eye (amblyopia) is a common condition that children with ptosis are at risk of developing. Congenital ptosis may also be the sign of a larger issue such as muscular disease, eye-movement issues, neurological disorders or eyelid tumors. For this reason, its imperative that you have ...

Do people always tell you that you look tired or sad? Do your eyes make you look older than you are? The eye area is often the first place to show signs of aging because the skin around the eyes is much thinner than that of the rest of the face. This reason, combined with hereditary factors, sun damage, stress and fatigue help explain why so many people, both young and old, are having eyelid surgery.. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can remove excess skin, bags and pouches from under and above the eyes. Sometimes an eyebrow lift is also performed to raise drooping eyebrows and help eliminate creases on the outside of the eye. These procedures will not eliminate crows feet, however, Botox or Dysport can help this condition. Also, while dark circles cannot be eliminated, the problem is often greatly improved because some darkness can be caused by shadows or excess skin. Dr. Marcus might also recommend fat grafts to the lower eyelids or laser skin resurfacing instead of, or in ...

Meibomian glands, a type of sebaceous gland, are arranged vertically within the upper and lower tarsal plates.1 Meibomian glands secrete lipids, which form a superficial oily layer on the tear film. Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is defined as a chronic and diffuse abnormality of the meibomian glands, and it is commonly observed with terminal duct obstruction and/or qualitative or quantitative changes in glandular secretion. MGD results in alteration of the tear film, eye irritation, clinically apparent inflammation, and ocular surface disease.2 Some ophthalmic examinations have been developed to diagnose MGD.3 The most conventional and significant means of diagnosing MGD is to use a slit lamp to thoroughly examine the lid margin, particularly that surrounding the orifice. In a patient with characteristic signs of obstructive MGD, slit-lamp microscopy reveals meibomian gland orifices that are closed with plugs consisting of thickened, opaque secretions containing keratinized material with ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Model for ocular tear film function. AU - Mathers, William D.. AU - Lane, James A.. AU - Sutphin, John E.. AU - Zimmerman, M. Bridget. PY - 1996. Y1 - 1996. N2 - Blepharitis patients have a number of disturbances in their tear film associated with meibomian gland dysfunction that affect evaporation and tear osmolarity. We tested a series of 156 consecutive patients, with a presumed diagnosis of blepharitis, dry eye, or allergic disease, and a series of 72 normals. We compared their tear film characteristics using tear osmolarity, tear volume, tear production (fluorophotometric and Schirmer test), tear turnover (decay constant), tear evaporation, and meibomian gland function evaluated by gland drop-out, expressed lipid viscosity, and volume. Of the 156 patients tested, we found 37 had only dry eye, 10 had only allergic disease, 73 had meibomian gland dysfunction and dry eye, and 36 had only meibomian gland dysfunction. We created a model of the relative influence some of these ...
Eyelid surgery, technically called Blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove small amounts of fat--usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes - features that make you look older and more tired than you feel. Over time the drooping effect can lead to interference with your vision. However, it wont remove crows feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. View eyelid surgery before and after photos.. Blepharoplasty surgery can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift. Eyelid surgery is especially popular because many people first show signs of aging or of being tired looking (even when they arent) because of their appearance around the eyes. This makes a lot of sense due to the eyes being the focal point of attention when communicating face to face.. Estimated Cost: $2000-$ ...

Typically, general anesthesia is not necessary for blepharoplasty, although the anesthesia used will be tailored to the patients comfort level and the type of procedure(s) being performed. If only blepharoplasty is being performed, local anesthesia with oral sedation (or IV sedation for lower eyelid surgery) can be an excellent option, however if combined with other procedures - or if the patient prefers - general anesthesia is used. Eyelid surgery takes about 1-2 hours on average when performed as a standalone procedure.. A lower blepharoplasty is performed through small incisions hidden underneath the lower lashes within the moist lining tissue on the inside of the eyelid. The main goal of this procedure is removing or repositioning excess fat to smooth the area beneath the eyes and achieve a rested, youthful appearance.. Upper blepharoplasty usually involves the conservative removal of skin and fat of the upper eyelid and is performed through small incisions in the upper eyelid.. Scarring is ...

Hello,. My 21 year old brother has had an eye oil gland issue for several years now. He is in severe pain if he is in a room with circulated air, if wind blows in his eyes, when he looks at the television or any flashing lights, and/or he is anywhere where exposed air comes in contact with his eyes. He has tried every drop under the sun, including some homopathic remedies involving cayenne pepper. He has had the oil glands pierced numerous times and recently underwent an extremely painful procedure where his oil glands were heated with a machine which actually caused his oil production to worsen. Does anyone know of anyone who has experienced this debilitating problem? He is pretty much home bound as he is in pain wherever he goes.

Complete relief of all sources of gland obstruction may allow for and perhaps promote MG regeneration. Using conventional treatments for MGD such as heat and pressure, as with thermal pulsation, meibum release may be facilitated through the orifice from in front of or distal to possible fixed or periductal fibrotic obstruction (figure 1). This effect could yield lipid into the tear film with some improved clinical symptoms. However, using heat and pressure to force meibum out from behind an unyielding fixed obstruction, such as periductal fibrosis, may paradoxically increase intraductal pressure and inflammation behind the obstruction, with the possibility of increased symptoms and secondary proximal atrophy, analogous to squeezing a blemish. In contrast, MGP provides relief of all obstructions, fixed and non-fixed, and gives unequivocal positive proof of a patent duct and orifice. By relief of all obstructions, MGP appears to equilibrate intraductal pressures with immediate relief of LT, reduce ...
