Flashcards in Eyelid and Third Eyelid Deck (14):
Fibrocartilage layer of eyelid that contains the meibomonian gland. Also the holding layer in surgical eye closure.
Glands in the tarsal layer of the eyelid that produces lipid or sebum to the tear film.(most external layer of the three-layered tear film)
the area outlined by the upper and lower eyelid margins
Drooping of eyelid mostly the upper eyelid caused by sympathetic denervation to the eyelid.
incomplete eyelid closure/coverage of the eyeball.
Identified by the 'gray line' of meibomian gland orifices. important when closing the eyelid surgically.
Rolling of the eyelid margin such that hairs are touching the ocular surface.
Outward rolling of the eyelids.
spasm of the orbicularis oculi muscle resulting in eyelid closure(squinting)
Surgical procedure in which the eyelids are sutured together.
incomplete eyelid closure and globe coverage.
Hair growing from normal skin reach the corneal/conjuctival surface(Technically entropion causes this)
cilia(eyelashes) which emerge from the meibomian glands.
