PMID:  1872138     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We present our experience (at the King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) with the management of the trachomatous eyelid disease. Four major eyelid complications: cicatricial entropion, eyelid retraction, secondary blepharospasm and brow ptosis, are described and their management outlined. Nine hundred sixty patients with cicatricial entropion are presented with thorough discussion of the surgical procedures and results. The surgical management of eyelid retraction, blepharospasm and brow ptosis is geared to provide the ophthalmologist with a complete overview of the disease pattern.
