PURPOSE To report a unique technique to repair lower eyelid retraction using resorbable polydioxanone implants. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a retrospective, consecutive, nonrandomized interventional case series. Patients with lower eyelid retraction after trauma repaired facial fracture, thyroid eye disease, lower eyelid blepharoplasty, and(More)
OBJECTIVES To introduce an effective and safe ophthalmic triaging system to be used by non-ophthalmologists.   METHODS A modified scoring triage system with more relevant clinical symptoms and signs from a previously published Rome Eye Scoring System for Urgency and Emergency (RESCUE) was evaluated over a 2-month period. The study was conducted following(More)
We report a 53-year-old female with uncontrolled diabetes mellitus who presented with decreased vision in the right eye for a few hours duration. Orbital computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were performed at presentation and showed a thickening and infarction of the right optic nerve with no other orbital abnormalities.

Two patients presented with cholesterol granuloma (CG), with completely different patterns of orbital roof involvement. One patient had a large intraorbital cystic CG, whereas the other had a very large intraosseous CG of the frontal bone. The presentation of CG with variable orbital roof involvement highlights the importance of being aware of the clinical(More)
Development of facial nerve palsy (FNP) may lead to dramatic change in the patient's facial function, expression, and emotions.
