Reverse ptosis-induced corneal steepening and decreased vision after LASIK surgery.


http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/quer ... t=Abstract


PURPOSE: To report a patient with a past history of LASIK who had
decreased vision and induced corneal steepening after lower eyelid
ptosis. Surgical correction of lower eyelid ptosis decreased the
corneal steepening and improved visual acuity. METHODS: Interventional
case report. RESULTS: A 37-year-old woman had a history of bilateral
LASIK, childhood strabismus surgery, and multiple surgeries to release
scarring and improve motility in her left eye. Last surgery to release
scar tissue resulted in reverse ptosis (lower eyelid ptosis) and
decreased visual acuity from induced corneal steepening. Correction of
lower eyelid ptosis by reinsertion of the retractor complex resulted in
decreasing corneal steepening, improved visual acuity, and good
anatomic position of the lower eyelid. CONCLUSION: Lower eyelid ptosis
may induce corneal steepening and decreased vision after LASIK.
Surgical correction of ptosis can decrease the extent of steepening and
improve visual acuity.
