PURPOSE To determine subjective and objective outcomes after two types of endoscopic endonasal dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) and to evaluate the use of the functional endoscopic dye test (FEDT). DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized trial. PARTICIPANTS Sixty-nine consecutive adult patients with primary acquired nasolacrimal duct obstruction. METHODS(More)
AIM To assess the results of primary aponeurotic ptosis surgery among UK ophthalmic oculoplastic surgeons, from both the surgeon's and patient's perspective; also to inform and encourage good clinical practice by generating outcomes for individual surgeons, units and for benchmarking purposes. METHODS A prospective, web-based, non-comparative,(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Lower eyelid retraction in thyroid eye disease contributes to ocular discomfort and an unsightly appearance, especially if asymmetrical. The use of donor scleral grafts is effective in lengthening the lower eyelids but carries a risk of virus transmission. Other techniques, including those which do not use grafts, need to be compared with(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop an effective and minimally invasive operation to correct lower eyelid entropion that would address both the horizontal and vertical laxity. DESIGN A prospective, noncomparative, interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-five consecutive patients with involutional entropion, aged 62 to 92 years (mean,(More)

AIMS To determine the adjuvant role of unilateral suborbicularis oculi fat (SOOF) lift in the periorbital rehabilitation of patients with chronic facial palsy. METHODS In a non-comparative prospective case series nine adult patients (seven male, two female) aged 34-90 years (mean 60.5) with chronic unrecovered facial palsy (over 1 year), who had not had(More)
PURPOSE To quantify the variation in the blood supply of the retrolaminar optic nerve in humans. The retrolaminar anterior optic nerve is supplied by an elliptical arterial "circle" of Haller and Zinn formed by anastomoses around the optic nerve between medial and lateral paraoptic short posterior ciliary arteries (PO-SPCAs). The frequency with which(More)
BACKGROUND 5-Fluorouracil is a pyrimidine analogue that inhibits DNA synthesis and is commonly used in the treatment of carcinomas of the breast, gastrointestinal tract and genitourinary tract. Excessive tearing that resolves on cessation of treatment is commonly described as a side effect of the drug. Permanent stenosis of the punctum and canaliculus is(More)
AIMS To assess the functional results and complications of Mersilene (polyester) mesh frontalis sling suspension to correct poor levator function ptosis. METHODS Retrospective case series. 32 eyelids of 20 patients (12 children and eight adults). RESULTS Follow up 1-69 months (mean 32). CHILDREN eight patients had bilateral and four unilateral surgery(More)
The morphology of the circle of Haller and Zinn and its variations were examined using methyl-methacrylate microvascular corrosion casting of human orbits obtained at post-mortem. It was found to be an elliptical microvascular anastomosis formed by branches of the medial and lateral para-optic short posterior ciliary arteries. The ellipse was divided into(More)
