  • This was a nice little presentation. I am currently preparing to do a presentation on common eye conditions requiring surgery for a group of operating department assistants, which led me to your site. It's great to see that you are sharing your work.

    Many thanks

    Kindest regards

    The Eyelids Husam Salhab The Eyelids Husam Salhab Presentation Transcript

    • THE EYELIDS Husam Salhab
    • Objectives
      • Anatomy of the eyelids
      • Function of the eyelids
      • Diseases of the eyelids
      بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
    • Modified sebaceous gland, oily secretions Ciliary glands (glands of moll) Modified sweat glands open b/n adjacent lashes
    • Function of the eyelids:
      • The eyelids provide physical protection to the eye .
      • Prevent drying of the eyes.
      • Ensuring normal tear film and drainage.
      • Secrete the oily part of the tear film.
    • Diseases of the eyelid Abnormal position Inflammation Lumps (masses) Abnormalities of the lashes
    • ABNORMAL LID POSITION Ptosis Entropion Ectropion
    • Ptosis: Abnormal low position of the upper eyelid
      • Causes:
      • 1-Mechanical factors
      • (a) large lid lesions.
      • (b) lid edema.
      • (c) tethering of the lid by conjunctival scaring.
      • (d) structural abnormalities.
      • (disinsertion of aponeurosis of the lavator muscle)
      • 2-neurological factors
      • (a) 3 rd nerve palsy (oculomotor)
      • (b) horner’s syndrome
      • (c) marcus-gunn jaw-winking syndrome
      • 3-myogenic factors
      • (a) myasthenia gravis
      • (b) some forms of muscular dystrophy
      • (c) chronic external opthalmoplegia
      • (ocular myopathy).
      • Symptoms:
      • -cosmotic effect.
      • - vision impairment.
      • -symptoms associated with the
      • underlying cause (diplopia, reduced
      • eye movment).
      • signs :
      • -Reduction in size of interpalpebral opening.
      • -Abnormal function of the levator muscle.
      • -Increasing ptosis after repeated elevation and
      • depression of the lid .
      • -others(miosis, lack of sweating..).
      • Treatment :
      • -Treat the underlying cause
      • -surgical correction.
      • Entropion: It is an inturning of the lid.
      • (usually the lower lid).
      • Causes:
      • -Weakness of the orbicularis muscle
      • -Conjuctival scarring
      • Symptoms and signs :
      • -Irritation of the eye
      • -Redness
      • Treatment :
      • -Lubricants or taping of the eyelid for
      • short term treatment.
      • -Surgery for permanent treatment
      • Ectropion: an outwards turning of the lid from globe.
      • -Frequently associated with epiphora and
      • chronic conjunctivitis.
      • Causes:
      • -Orbicularis muscle laxity
      • -Scarring of the periorbital skin
      • -7 th nerve palsy (facial)
      • Treatment: surgical.
      • Blepharitis
      • -Chronic eyelid inflammation.
      • -sometimes associated with staphylococcal infection.
      • -It causes squamos debris, inflammation
      • of the lid margin, skin and eyelash follicles.
      • - the meibomian gland may be affected.
    • Blepharitis squamos debris, inflammation of the lid margin, skin and eyelash follicles
      • Signs and symptoms :
      • -Tired eyes (worse in the morning)
      • -Crusting
      • -Scaling
      • -debris around the eyelash
      • -Reduction in number of eyelash
      • -Obstructon,plugging and cloudy secretions of meibomian ducts.
      • Treatment :
      • -Lid toileting or diluted baby shampoo.
      • (anterior blepharitis)
      • -lid massage after a hot bath to remove
      • the abnormal meibomian gland
      • secretions
      • -topical or systemic antibiotic for staph.
      • Infection.
      • -topical steroids.
      • -artificial tears.
      • Chalazion :
      • Common painless condition
      • Meibomian gland obstruction cause chronic granulomatous inflammation within the tarsal plate.
      • Symptoms: lid swelling,usually resolves within 6 months.
      • If not resolved :surgical incision
      • Complications: - painful abscess within the
      • meibomian gland
      • -stye.(abscess in the eyelash
      • follicle)
    • Chalazion
      • Ductal Cysts :
      • Cyst of Moll:
      • translucent cyst on the lid margin
      • caused by sweat gland obstruction
      • Cyst of Zeis:
      • opaque cyst on the eyelid margin
      • caused by accessory sebacous gland blockage
      • Rx: excision for cosmetic reasons
      • Squamous cell papilloma:
      • frond-like lid lesion ( ورق الشجر ) with fibrovascular core and thickened squamous epithelium.
      • Usually asymptomatic but can be excised for cosmotic reasons with cautery to the base.
      • Naevus :
      • Lesions derived from naevus cells(altered melanocytes)
      • Can be pigmented or non pigmented.
      • No treatment is necessary.
      • Xanthelasma : Bilateral soft yellow lipid containing plaques
      • Associated with hypercholesterolaemia
      • Basal cell carcinoma :
      • 90% of eyelid malignancies
      • Nodular ,sclerosing or ulcerative(rodent ulcer) lesions
      • Pale pearly margins
      • Painless
      • Slow growing
      • Non metastatising
      • Locally invasive
      • Rx : the earlier it is detected the easier to be removed
      • excision biopsy with a margin of healthy tissue.
      • cryotherapy
      • radiotherapy
    • Pale, Ulcerated, Nodule
      • Squamous cell carcinoma:
      • 2 nd most common
      • More malignant
      • Metastatize to regional LNs
      • Rapidly growing
      • Hard nodules or scaly patches
      • Rx: complete surgical removal.
    • Hard nodules or scaly patches
      • Trichiasis :
      • Condition in which eyelashes turn inward toward the globe.
      • Corneal irritation and abrasion .
      • Presentation : irritation and tearing.
      • Rx : pluck( قص ) eyelash ; recurrence can be treated with electrolysis .
