We propose that this could infuence the final bleb morphology and function. We designed a pilot study to assess this using optical coherence tomography (OCT) to measure bulbar(More)

METHODS The technique works by creating a directed posterior lamellar scar. Sutures are preplaced in firm medial canthal tissue, and a triangular diathermy burn is made between this fixation point and the medial tarsal plate(More)

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(More)
