We assessed eyelid function by subjective clinical examination and quantitative means in patients recovering from facial nerve palsy. Electromagnetic search coil techniques were used to record the concurrent movements of the two eyelids to study alterations in blink main sequence (peak velocity versus amplitude) relationships and interocular differences in eyelid kinematics. After onset of unilateral palsy, the paresis of eyelid closure showed varying degrees of recovery. Adaptive increases in… CONTINUE READING
