To examine changes in parameters of the visual field test before and after blepharoptosis surgery in patients with glaucoma. Twenty-three eyes of 14 glaucoma patients who underwent blepharoptosis surgery at Toyama University Hospital between July 2015 and September 2020 were included in this study. Pre- and post-operative values for the mean deviat...

The primary goal of blepharoplasty for blepharoptosis and blepharochalasis is to elevate the upper eyelid to restore a full field of vision, although many surgeons also aim to provide a better aesthetic outcome. Several facial configuration changes may occur following blepharoplasty. This study examined the effectiveness of vessel clips to preopera...

Background Lagophthalmos with exposure keratopathy is a potential vision-threatening complication following surgery for blepharoptosis. We report three cases successfully treated with botulinum toxin-A (Botox®, Allergan, Irvine, USA) for this complication. Cases Three patients presented with severe blepharoptosis after surgery for orbital and front...
The aim of this study is to develop an AI model that accurately identifies referable blepharoptosis automatically and to compare the AI model’s performance to a group of non-ophthalmic physicians. In total, 1000 retrospective single-eye images from tertiary oculoplastic clinics were labeled by three oculoplastic surgeons as having either ptosis, in...

Botulinum toxin A (BoNT-A) has grown tremendously in aesthetic dermatology since 2002 when the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved its use for treating moderate-to-severe glabellar lines. Blepharoptosis, due to local spread of toxin, is a reported side effect of BoNT-A which, although rare, more frequently occurs among i...

We report three cases of myasthenia gravis in whom the asymmetrical ptosis at presentation became more pronounced with the described bedside technique. Pronounced ptosis could be elicited by making the patient speak continuously for up to 2 minutes. Pauses for breathing and natural blinking were allowed. The sign is best elicited in newly diagnosed...
