AlloDerm for correction of lower lid retraction

This is a retrospective review of 95 eyes of 54 patients undergoing orbital decompression for Graves’ orbitopathy. All patients had a swinging eyelid approach across the whole of the lower lid. Thirty-six eyes also had insertion of a 0.3mm thick...

IR recession and prevention of lower lid retraction

The authors report the efficacy in preventing lower eyelid retraction and long-term results of a new technique of inferior rectus recession for vertical strabismus. The results for 35 patients were compared with 22 patients having conventional inferior rectus recession. Inferior...

Myopathic ptosis and lower lid retraction surgery

This is a description of a surgical technique which simultaneously addresses both the upper lid ptosis and lower lid retraction in patients with moderate to severe myopathic ptosis. The procedure was performed on 16 eyes of nine patients and involved...

Open-field autorefraction screening

This study aimed to determine the efficacy of the Shin-Nippon NVision-K5001 autorefractometer using the open-field refractometry principle in the elimination of accommodation in children. One hundred and fourteen patients aged three to six years were recruited. After excluding ocular pathology...

The revolutionary Chronos Automated Binocular Refraction System with SightPilot® guided refraction software

Topcon Chronos is a complete digital refraction solution combining binocular objective autorefraction, keratometry and subjective refraction in a single device.

Effects of orbital decompression

This is a retrospective review of 319 orbital decompression operations in 169 patients (73% female) with thyroid eye disease. Three wall decompressions were performed in 92 eyes, 2-wall in 206 (medial and floor), and a single wall (medial) in 18,...

Bilateral LR recession for DRS

This study reports the use of bilateral lateral rectus (LR) recessions instead of unilateral LR recession for unilateral exotropic Duane’s retraction syndrome (DRS) with abnormal head posture. This was a retrospective study of seven patients; five female and two male....

A simple technique for managing eyelid retraction in a patient with an exposed Boston type 2 keratoprosthesis (Kpro)

The article describes a patient with mucous membrane pemphigoid and a Boston type 2 Kpro. In the early postoperative period (one week) inferior skin retraction was noted with exposure of the Kpro and carrier cornea. The exposure was managed by...

Prostaglandin-associated periorbitopathy

This is a masked study of 33 patients who had been taking a prostaglandin analogue in one eye only for at least a year, to look for signs of prostaglandin-associated periorbitopathy (PAP). The investigators devised a new grading system to...

BT for Duane’s retraction syndrome esotropia

The aim of the study was to evaluate the correction of esotropia and face turn due to Duane’s retraction syndrome (DRS) type I. The mean age was 21 months (12-36 months). The mean dose of botulinum toxin (BT) was 5.6±1.8IU...

Abducens nerve palsy following surgical correction of craniosynostosis

The authors present two cases of unilateral abducens palsy secondary to a recent trans-sutural distraction osteogenesis (TSuDO) operation for craniosynostosis. The basic principle of the TSuDO procedure is described as dissection and distraction of the prematurely fused sutures. This complication...

Bleb-related changes in upper lid position

This is a review of five patients with upper lid ptosis or lid retraction secondary to large filtering blebs post-trabeculectomy. The authors review each case and apply a model to analyse the separate forces acting on the upper lid to...
