Accidental removal of the lacrimal gland is a rare complication of ptosis surgery. We report two children who underwent large unilateral levator palpebrae superioris resections (LPSr). After surgery, both patients developed dry eye. Post-operatively, the parents of both patients noticed no tears in the affected eye when their child cried. Computed tomography proved the absence of the lacrimal gland in the operated eye in both patients. Oculoplastic surgeons should pay close attention to the anatomy of the levator muscle and its proximity to surrounding tissues in order to avoid lesions on important orbital structures, including the lacrimal gland, and to avoid the development of long-term dry eye...

The management of blind, painful eyes in Sturge-Weber syndrome patients poses unique challenges to the oculoplastic surgeon. Intraocular and orbital vascular malformations and calcification may theoretically lead to unexpected hemorrhage and difficulty placing an implant in a calcified scleral shell. We present two cases of patients with Sturge-Weber syndrome with blind, painful eyes who underwent evisceration with silicone implant and discuss the relevant current literature. Both of our patients had uncomplicated surgeries and post-operative courses...

INTRODUCTION: Orbital decompression is the indicated procedure for addressing exophthalmos and compressive optic neuropathy in thyroid eye disease. There are an abundance of techniques for removal of orbital bone, fat, or a combination published in the scientific literature. The relative efficacy and complications of these interventions in relation to the specific indications remain as yet undocumented. We performed a systematic review of the current published evidence for the effectiveness of orbital decompression, possible complications, and impact on quality of life...

Measurement of periocular structures is of value in several clinical specialties including ophthalmology, optometry, medical and clinical genetics, oculoplastic surgery, and traumatology. Therefore we aimed to determine the periocular anthropometric norms for Chinese young adults using a noninvasive 3D stereophotography system. Craniofacial images using the 3dMDface system were acquired for 103 Chinese subjects (51 males and 52 females) between the ages of 18 and 35 years. Anthropometric landmarks were identified on these digital images according to standard definitions, and linear distances between these landmarks were calculated...

BACKGROUND: Complex visual hallucinations in the presence of a clear mental state and in the absence of underlying neurological disorders have received increased recognition since Charles Bonnet reported visual hallucinations secondary to mature cataracts in 1760. The prevalence of Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS) varies widely in the literature and might be underestimated in most settings. The current paper presents a case of acute-onset CBS due to a unilateral Frost suture after revision of an orbit floor fracture...
