A 56-year-old-man presented a 2-month history of chalazion in the eyelids without response to treatment and with an inconclusive biopsy. Laboratory results confirmed the presence of Enterobacter cloacae and Streptococcus gordonii infection. Despite appropriate intravenous antibiotic treatment, clinical worsening was observed. Radical surgical excision and total tarsorrhaphy were performed. Following treatment, the patient was asymptomatic for 6 weeks until he developed acute renal failure, generalised arthralgia, acute hypertensive anterior uveitis, and dacryoadenitis...

Purpose: To develop a rabbit model of Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK) as the best method to reproduce the natural course of this disease. Methods: To induce AK, infected contact lenses (1000 amoebae/mm2, 90% trophozoites) were placed over the previously debrided corneal surface, in combination with a temporary tarsorrhaphy. Environmental and clinical strains of Acanthamoeba spp. (genotype T4) were used. Three groups (1L, n = 32; 2L-21d, n = 5; 2L-3d, n = 23) were established according to the number of contact lenses used (1L, 1 lens; 2L-21d and 2L-3d, 2 lenses) and the placement day of these (1L, day 1; 2L-21d, days 1 and 21; 2L-3d, days 1 and 3)...

RATIONALE: This is a retrospective study aimed to determine the efficacy of mini-scleral contact lens in protecting the cornea and improving vision in cases of facial palsy. PATIENT CONCERNS: Patients with facial palsy get exposure keratitis because the cornea is dry. They feel pain, discomfort and excessive watering. If left untreated, it leads to permanent damage to the cornea and loss of good functional vision. Mini-scleral lens keep the cornea covered by saline solution all wearing hours...

Sulfur mustard (SM) is a strong blistering, highly reactive, lipophilic chemical war agent that causes injury in different organs including the skin, eyes and respiratory tract. The Eyes are especially susceptible to the consequences of SM poisoning because of the aqueous and mucosal nature of conjunctiva and cornea. DNA alkylation and depletion of glutathione, are the most important mechanisms of SM action in the eye injuries. Acute clinical symptoms are including decrease in visual acuity, dryness, photophobia, blepharospasm, conjunctivitis and complaints of foreign body sensation and soreness that gradually progress to severe ocular pain...

Purpose: Most of the inflammation in murine herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1)-induced stromal keratitis (HSK) is due to exposure stress resulting from loss of corneal nerves and blink reflex. Corneal grafts often fail when placed on corneal beds with a history of HSK. We asked if corneal exposure contributes to the severe pathology of corneal grafts on HSV-1-infected corneal beds. Methods: Herpes simplex virus type 1-infected corneas were tested for blink reflex...

E V Boiko, V F Chernysh
Ophthalmic literature currently lacks definiteness in classifying surgeries aimed at eyelid closure. In Western countries the term tarsorrhaphy is most commonly used, while in Russia another term - blepharorhaphy - is widely accepted. The latter seems more appropriate as the sutures are passed through all palpebral layers, not just the cartilage. It has also been suggested that temporary blepharorhaphy, which implies that we use only sutures to bring the eyelids together, and therefore, the procedure cannot be permanent, should be called simple blepharorhaphy...

The corneal epithelium consists of stratified epithelial cells, sparsely interspersed with dendritic cells (DCs) and a dense layer of sensory axons. We sought to assess the structural and functional correlation of DCs and sensory nerves. Two morphologically different DCs, dendriform and round-shaped, were detected in the corneal epithelium. The dendriform DCs were located at the sub-basal space where the nerve plexus resides, with DC dendrites crossing several nerve endings. The round-shaped DCs were closely associated with nerve fiber branching points, penetrating the basement membrane and reaching into the stroma...

We promote a simple, reversible temporary tarsorrhaphy technique and describe how to place a 4/0 polypropylene suture, on a round-body needle, into the upper and lower tarsal plate to create a strong suture tarsorrhaphy. This technique has been found to be extremely effective over 20 years' experience with minimal patient discomfort or complications. The eyelid margin anatomy is not disrupted and maintains its normal architecture and contour following release of the tarsorrhaphy. This temporary suture tarsorrhaphy technique is inexpensive, safe and easy to learn and above all comfortable for the patient...

BACKGROUND: Internal eyelid spacer graft is routinely placed during lower eyelid retraction surgery, which may be unnecessary. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy of lower eyelid retraction surgery without internal graft in select cases. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of patients undergoing reconstructive lower eyelid retraction surgery without internal graft, by one surgeon from 2013 to 2015. Surgical technique included transconjunctival lower eyelid retractor lysis, canthoplasty, and temporary tarsorrhaphy, with or without subperiosteal midface-sub oribularis oculi fat (SOOF) lifting and scar lysis...

Myopic individuals, especially those with severe myopia, are at higher-than-normal risk of cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment and chorioretinal abnormalities. In addition, pathological myopia is a common irreversible cause of visual impairment and blindness. Our study demonstrates the effect of scleral crosslinking using riboflavin and ultraviolet-A radiation on the development of axial myopia in a rabbit model. The axial length of the eyeball was measured by A-scan ultrasound in New Zealand white rabbits aged 13 days (male and female)...

A 17-year-old male presented with gradual painless diminution of vision since childhood. Slit lamp examination revealed both eyes having congenital cataract. Right eye lens aspiration was performed but was uneventful, and he prepared for left eye surgery after 7 days. Immediately after giving a peribulbar block, a complete akinesia, tight eyelids, and stony hard eyeball was noted. An abaxial proptosis of 7 mm was noted. Lateral canthotomy and inferior cantholysis were done and proptosis reduced to 5 mm. Bleeding time-clotting time was normal...

REVIEW
John J Chi
The preoperative assessment of the eye in facial paralysis is a critical component of surgical management. The degree of facial nerve paralysis, lacrimal secretion, corneal sensation, and lower eyelid position must be assessed accurately. Upper eyelid loading procedures are standard management of lagophthalmos. Lower eyelid tightening repositions the lower eyelid and helps maintain the aqueous tear film. Eyelid reanimation allows an aesthetic symmetry with blinking and restores protective functions vital to ocular preservation...

BACKGROUND: To determine the safety and effectiveness of full thickness eyelid reconstructions using a semicircular rotational flap without reconstructing the posterior lamella. METHODS: The charts of all patients undergoing semicircular flap closure of full thickness eyelid defects by one surgeon (JDP) at the Cole Eye Institute between March 2000 and October 2012 were reviewed. Charts were reviewed for patient demographic information, as well as for the size of the defect, the type of flap used, length of follow-up and complications...

REVIEW
Andrew H Bartlett, Jimmy D Bartlett
Dry eye disease and other ocular surface diseases are complex multifactorial disorders often characterized by ocular surface inflammatory changes, instability of the tear film, and functional vision impairment. Recent research has led to new concepts regarding diagnosis and management, and therapeutic interventions now include ocular lubricants, secretagogues, topical and systemic anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive agents, tear preservation, and, for advanced cases, a variety of surgical approaches. This review considers contemporary procedures for treatment of advanced ocular surface diseases, including thermal and electrocautery of the lacrimal puncta, lid surgeries such as tarsorrhaphy, and multiple procedures to protect the exposed or compromised ocular surface...

OBJECTIVES: To retrospectively evaluate the complications, graft clarity, and outcomes associated with the use of commercially available porcine urinary bladder submucosa (ACell Vet(™) ) alone for corneal reconstruction in dogs and cats. PROCEDURES: Dogs or cats receiving an ACell Vet(™) graft for corneal reconstruction due to severe ulcerative keratitis or after a keratectomy to remove a corneal sequestrum were included. All received a single layer of ACell Vet(™) , bandage contact lens, and temporary tarsorrhaphy...
