PURPOSE To analyze the control of intraocular pressure (IOP) and corneal graft survival after implantation of Ahmed glaucoma device (AGD) in eyes that had high-risk penetrating keratoplasty (PK). METHODS This is a retrospective noncomparative case series of 59 eyes that had high-risk PK and underwent AGD insertion. The primary outcome measures are the(More)
PURPOSE To establish a reliable technique for harvesting the orbicularis oculi muscle to facilitate diagnosis of chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia, a mitochondrial myopathy. METHODS In this retrospective observational case series, 10 patients clinically suspected to have chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia underwent surgery for upper(More)
BACKGROUND To describe the indications, techniques and outcomes of various browlift procedures in a predominantly East-Asian community. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective review of patients who underwent browlift procedures performed by 2 oculoplastic surgeons or under their direct supervision, in a tertiary referral hospital in South East Asia from 2002(More)
Our objective was to study the outcome of femtosecond-assisted lamellar keratoplasty (FSLK) in stromal corneal diseases. This is a retrospective chart review of 17 patients (20 eyes) who underwent FSLK for anterior corneal pathologies. Main outcome measures were refractive results following FSLK, complications, and graft survival. Mean follow-up time was 42(More)
Conventional lid surgery of acquired epiblepharon secondary to increased orbital volume can be result of under correction of the epiblepharon, because the increased orbital volume remains unaddressed. In this case report, we present a case of acquired epiblepharon, secondary to increased orbital volume, treated with orbital decompression.
We sought to describe outcome of surgical repair in patients presenting with orbital blowout fractures. This noncomparative, retrospective, consecutive case series reviewed the case notes of 63 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for a blowout fracture between November 1992 and March 2005. Risk factors for motility outcome as well as presence of(More)
To analyze the control of intraocular pressure (IOP) with an Ahmed glaucoma drainage device (AGDD) in two groups of glaucoma patients--one with cicatricial ocular surface disease (COSD) and one with aniridia. This is a retrospective comparative case series of nine patients (11 eyes) with COSD and six patients (8 eyes) with aniridia who underwent AGDD(More)
BACKGROUND Psoriasis is a relatively common inflammatory disease of the skin and joints. Moderate to severe psoriasis often necessitates lifelong alternating systemic therapies, many of which may increase the risk of nonmelanoma skin cancers and lymphoproliferative disorders. CASE DESCRIPTION A 34-year-old male was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma(More)
A 40-year-old woman presented to the eye clinic with painless swelling of her right lower eyelid of 2 years' duration. Examination revealed severe loss of vision in the right eye with hypoglobus and exotropia. CT showed a diffuse right orbital infiltrative lesion with extension to the brain parenchyma. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis of orbital(More)
