Speaker: Dr Pierre Escalas

Institut Ophtalmologique Sourdille Atlantique Nantes / Saint Herblain

Webinar of the Practical Ophthalmology Workshops Paris 2019

This video describes a particular surgical technique to reapply the lower eyelid against the eyeball in complex forms with exophthalmos and/or sclera show and/or laxity of the medial canthal tendon


The videos have been created and produced with great care to be as relevant as possible. Many topics are controversial and the options presented are rational personal choices, the result of an experiment involving several thousand interventions. Other ways of doing things are possible, they may have been proposed to you, so do not hesitate to ask for the reasons for the choices that were made.

This site is only a guide and does not replace the explanations given in a consultation, which are essential for understanding the analysis of the characteristics of your face, which is unique.

In the same way, the examples presented allow you to understand the principles of eye surgery, but they cannot necessarily be transposed to your particular situation. It is therefore not possible to guarantee the results you have seen on the different presentations.

By using this site, you accept these limitations. If you do not, I ask you not to use it.
