Workup

  • Workup and Treatment A stepwise approach based on the severity and expected duration of the lagophthalmos is recommended. Most important is close follow-up with frequent examination of the cornea.[aao.org]

Treatment

  • Treatment will depend on whether the condition is expected to last indefinitely or if it will be a short-term issue.[waterdownoptometric.ca]

Prognosis

  • The longer the period of visual disability, the worse the prognosis in terms of visual acuity. The most common causes are: Strabismus - secondary to suppression of images from the affected eye to avoid double vision.[patient.info]

Etiology

  • The choice of therapy requires an understanding of both the etiology and expected duration of the lagophthalmos. Initial Evaluation Taking the history. A careful history should seek to determine the etiology of the lagophthalmos.[aao.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Pathophysiology [ edit ] Lagophthalmos can arise from a malfunction of the facial nerve. [2] Lagopthalmos can also occur in comatose patients having a decrease in orbicularis tone, in patients having palsy of the facial nerve (7th cranial nerve), in people[en.wikipedia.org]
