Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you...it was an oculoplastic surgeon that performed the original surgery...have since seen dir. of Optm surgery at Baptist Hospital in Winston Salem, NC, USA, Dr. Yates. He said had only seen one other case in 27 yrs of surgery and was considered "incomplete blink"--is this the same thing as lagophthalomos (don't know that word meaning). He said cause may have been too much of nerve block and the fact that gen. anthes. was used instead of local...which he would have preferred. The nerve that controls the incomplete blink of eye is the lubricant for eye and I am using lub. drops as well as ointment at night....BUT, I would like to know if there is any other that I could do to speed up the healing process...I do blink my eyes about every 20 min. for about 10 times to help lubricate. Have you seen such as this before....if so what was your treatment?
Thanks so much for your response.
