Experienced Oculoplastic Surgeon Jane Olver gives an insight into Blepharoptosis - the importance of getting the diagnosis right.
The presentation covers the following points:
- It is important to bear in mind that a blepharoptosis can be the presenting sign of a serious life-threatening systemic disorder - it may not be just another droopy eyelid
- The upper eyelid must be everted and the superior fornix examined as part of the physical examination of a patient
- An optometrist should appreciate the risk of blepharoptosis associated with contact lens wear
- The examining clinician should be able to differentiate a true blepharoptosis from a pseudoblepharoptosis
- A history of botulinum toxin injections should always be sought from a patient presenting with a blepharoptosis
- Myasthenia is the cause of an acquired blepharoptosis until proven otherwise
