The first experience of using an implant for upper eyelid loading in paralytic lagophthalmos



The first experience of using an implant for upper eyelid loading in paralytic lagophthalmos



Vestnik Oftalmologii 128(1): 41-43



The results of using an implant (weight) for upper eyelid loading to correct paralytic lagophthalmos in patients with chronic facial palsy are presented 7 patients (7 eyes) were included into the study. The weight was implanted into the upper eyelid and fixed to the tarsal plate. No intra- and postoperative complications caused by weight implantation into the upper eyelid were observed during 12 months of follow-up. The first experience of using of this method indicates an opportunity of effective lagophthalmos correction and significant corneal improvement.
