141. Pinguecula

of the eye (the sclera) and the transparent window at the front of the eye (the cornea) meet. If the cornea is imagined as a clock face, a pinguecula will generally form at the three and nine o’clock positions. This condition becomes commoner as people age, so that by 70 years most people have them. Both eyes are usually affected. There is no effect on vision. This is a mild degenerative condition, due to long-term exposure to ultra-violet (UV) light, either occurring naturally in sunlight

Community Eye Health. 2005;18(55):101-4 Lay summary Full or partial penetration of the outer coat of the eye (the clear part, the cornea or the white part, the sclera) can result from industrial, work-related or DIY injuries, or from assaults with sharp objects. Such injuries occur three times as frequently in males as in females. Because they are so close to the eyeball, the eyelids may be injured also. The optometrist will check

147. Fibrin glue versus sutures for conjunctival autografting in primary pterygium surgery. (PubMed)

of attaching conjunctival autografts to the sclera are through suturing or fibrin glue. Each method presents its own advantages and disadvantages. Sutures require considerable skill from the surgeon and can be associated with a prolonged operation time, postoperative discomfort and suture-related complications, whereas fibrin glue may give a decreased operation time, improve postoperative comfort and avoid suture-related problems.To assess the effectiveness of fibrin glue compared to sutures

148. Conjunctival autograft for pterygium. (PubMed)

the visual axis.Surgery is the only effective treatment for pterygium, though recurrences are common. With simple excision techniques (that is, excising the pterygium and leaving bare sclera), the risk of recurrence has been reported to be upwards of 80%. Pterygium excision combined with a tissue graft has a lower risk of recurrence. In conjunctival autograft surgery, conjunctival tissue from another part of the person's eye along with limbal tissue is resected in one piece and used to cover the area (...) from which the pterygium was excised. Another type of tissue graft surgery for pterygium is amniotic membrane graft, whereby a piece of donor amniotic membrane is fixed to the remaining limbus and bare sclera area after the pterygium has been excised.The objective of this review was to assess the safety and effectiveness of conjunctival autograft (with or without adjunctive therapy) compared with amniotic membrane graft (with or without adjunctive therapy) for pterygium. We also planned

break-up time and Schirmer’s tests in patients with meibomian gland disease [ ]. Some patients with severe dry eye develop an associated blepharospasm. There are small case series describing a good response to botulinum toxin injections in these circumstances [ , ]. For severe dry eye bandage scleral contact lenses, designed to protect the surface and create an optimized environment for healing, may be indicated. These lenses vault over the corneal surface and rest on the sclera. They are rigid

patients for IOIS, IgG4-related orbital disease, or other inflammatory/granulomatous disease. Currently there is little evidence to support one modality’s superiority to others in evaluating this patient population [39-41]. A hallmark of IOIS in its chronic form is fibrosis, which results in decreased signal on T2-weighted MRI sequences [48]. A small subset of patients with isolated ocular manifestation of IOIS had posterior scleritis, with inflammatory enhancement of the sclera on postcontrast imaging

and transmitting coil and an electronic case fixed to the outside of the sclera (white of the eye), and an electrode array (60 electrodes) that is surgically attached to the surface of the retina. The electrode array is connected to the electronic case by a ribbon cable that passes through the sclera. 1 The camera housed within the glasses captures images that are sent to the video processing unit and converted to electronic signals. These signals are then sent to the transmitter coil on the glasses (...) Products, Inc. Implantation of the Argus II Retinal Prosthesis System can be performed by a single surgeon in a two-hour outpatient procedure under general anaesthesia. 3 Details regarding the surgery are as follows: ? At commencement of the implant procedure, antibiotics and steroids are administered by intravenous injection. ? In phakic eyes (eyes with a lens) the lens is removed. ? An incision is made into the conjunctiva surrounding the cornea, exposing the underlying sclera and extra-ocular
