PPV with ILM peeling in post traumatic macular hole

PPV with ILM peeling in post traumatic macular hole Indications for consideration of the surgical management of macular holes are based on the presence of a full-thickness defect. Once this defect has developed, the potential for spontaneous resolution is low. Thus, surgical management is recommended with documentation of a stage 2 or higher, full-thickness macular hole. Stage 1 holes and ... Read More »

Muller’s muscle conjunctival resection (MMCR) For Ptosis

Muller’s muscle conjunctival resection (MMCR) For Ptosis

Muller’s muscle conjunctival resection (MMCR) For Ptosis Müller’s muscle (MM) is a sympathetically innervated upper eyelid muscle that, together with the levator palpebral superioris, elevates the eyelid. The MM resembles smooth muscle, and originates from the levator aponeurosis about 15 mm above the superior tarsus. The MM is adherent to the conjunctiva but easily separable from the levator aponeurosis, and ... Read More »

Modified Blaskovics Operation For Ptosis Repair

Modified Blaskovics Operation For Ptosis Repair

Modified Blaskovics Operation For Ptosis Repair(Transconjunctival Blepharoptosis Surgery) Posterior approach blepharoptosis surgery, via the transconjunctival route, was probably the first method of surgery employed to shorten the levator muscle . In 1923 Blaskovics  first described his technique of extensive dissection of the levator muscle from its surrounding structures prior to its resection. Two sets of sutures were used, the first ...

ILM peeling with epiretinal membrane removal

ILM peeling with epiretinal membrane removal

ILM peeling with epiretinal membrane removal Epiretinal membrane is a disease of the eye in response to changes in the vitreous humor or more rarely, diabetes. It is also called macular pucker. Sometimes, as a result of immune system response to protect the retina, cells converge in the macular area as the vitreous ages and pulls away in posterior vitreous detachment ... Read More »

Femtosecond laser makes cataract surgery easier ( Pizza Slices Technique)

Femtosecond laser makes cataract surgery easier ( Pizza Slices Technique) In this video we can see how (FLACS) Femtosecond laser assisted cataract makes it easier by doing a complete circular capsulorehxsis and by cutting the nucleus with a sextan cuts into small triangles and also by softening the remaining nucleus into small cubes. The role of femtosecond lasers in cataract ... Read More »

Removal of epithelial downgrowth after LASIK Video

Removal of epithelial downgrowth after LASIK Video

Removal of epithelial downgrowth after LASIK Ingrowth of epithelium into the corneal flap interface is a relatively uncommon complication of LASIK. The incidence of visually significant epithelial ingrowth is about 1% in primary cases and 2% on enhancement cases in microkeratome-assisted flap creation. The incidence may be less with femtosecond-assisted flap creation.Ingrowth of these cells into the corneal stromal interface is ...
