PURPOSE To evaluate the changes in eye position and orbital content expansion following medial and lateral orbital wall decompression for thyroid-associated orbitopathy. METHODS The authors used a computer software program (syngo InSpace4D, syngo 3D, syngo fusion, and syngo Volume Evaluation; Siemens AG, Forchheim, Germany) to measure the orbital(More)
Thyroid-associated orbitopathy (TAO) is usually diagnosed clinically. Early presentation of TAO such as ocular irritation, lid puffiness, and mild retraction may be overlooked and misdiagnosed. Careful clinical evaluation, laboratory investigations, and orbital imaging studies are needed for diagnosing early TAO. Knowing the pathogenesis will open the door(More)
PURPOSE To compare the success rates of probing versus bicanalicular silastic intubation as the primary treatment for congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction (CNLDO) in children ≥1 year old. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomised, comparison. METHODS Participants were randomised to undergo probing or bicanalicular silastic intubation. In bilateral cases,(More)
Lipoid proteinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by cutaneous and mucosal lesions and hoarseness appearing in early childhood. It is caused by homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in the ECM1 gene. The disease is largely uncharacterized in Arab population and the mutation(s) spectrum in the Arab population is largely unknown.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of optic nerve sheath fenestration (ONSF) on papilledema grade in the operated eyes and the contralateral nonoperated fellow eyes in patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH). DESIGN Retrospective review. PARTICIPANTS A total of 78 patients underwent ONSF, and 20 patients served as controls. METHODS Charts(More)
Prostate carcinoma, when metastatic, typically involves bone and produces both osteoblastic and osteolytic changes. Orbital involvement is uncommon and extraocular muscle enlargement is a rare presentation of metastatic prostate adenocarcinoma. The authors present 2 patients with prostatic tumor metastasis to extraocular muscles. One patient had(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the experience of King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH) with uveal melanoma over the last two decades in a fashion similar to the result of the Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS). DESIGN Retrospective, non-comparative, interventional, case series. PARTICIPANTS All patients were diagnosed with uveal melanoma at the King(More)
Development of facial nerve palsy (FNP) may lead to dramatic change in the patient's facial function, expression, and emotions. The ophthalmologist may play an important role in the initial evaluation, and the long-term management of patients with new-onset of FNP. In patients with expected temporary facial weakness, no efforts should be wasted to ensure(More)
PURPOSE To study the utility of meibography for the morphology of meibomian glands in normal eyelids and in various eyelid diseases. DESIGN A cross-sectional study. METHODS A newly designed transilluminator, fitting both the upper along with lower eyelids, and an infrared camera were used to obtain video clips of the meibomian glands for 60 asymptomatic(More)
A few cases of pleomorphic adenoma of an ectopic lacrimal gland involving the deep orbit and lateral canthus have been previously reported. A 75-year-old female with a slow-growing, large pleomorphic adenoma arising from ectopic lacrimal gland tissue in the left upper eyelid is described in the present case report.
