Limbal Stem Cell Deficiency & Eye Prosthesis

Posted by Kuldeep Raizada on Thursday, April 7, 2016, In : Ophthalmology 


The corneal epithelium is a stratified squamous epithelium from which superficial terminal cells are naturally shed. Limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) is characterized by a loss or deficiency of the stem cells in the limbus that are vital for re-population of the corneal epithelium and to the barrier function of the limbus [1 2]. When these stem cells are lost, the corneal epithelium is unable to repair and renew itself. This results in epithelial breakdown and persistent epithelial defects,...

Hydrophilic Digital Artificial Eyes: Kuldeep Raizada, Ph D, BCO

Posted by Kuldeep Raizada on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, In : Ophthalmology 

In a well-made prosthetic eye, tears should flow evenly across the prosthesis just as they do over the natural eye — in a sheet-like fashion, rather than collecting in droplets. We call this type of behavior hydrophilic — “water loving.” Hydrophobic (“water fearing”) artificial eyes repel water, much like the surface of a waxed car.

The difference between a hydrophilic and a hydrophobic piece can have dramatic differences in the satisfaction for the patient. Hydr...

Posted by Kuldeep Raizada on Sunday, April 20, 2014, In : Ophthalmology 

Enucleation is removal of the eye, leaving the eye muscles and remaining orbital contents intact. This type of ocular surgery is indicated for a number of different ocular tumors, in eyes that have suffered severe trauma, and in eyes that are blind and painful owing to other disease.[1]

Auto-enucleation (oedipism) and other forms of serious self inflicted eye injury are an extremely rare form of severe self-harm which usually results from serious mental illnesses such as schizophrenia.[2] The ...

Care for Artificial Eye: Kuldeep Raizada, Ph D BCO, BADO

Posted by Kuldeep Raizada on Saturday, April 19, 2014, In : Ophthalmology 

DAILY ROUTINE

The morning routine for hygiene care begins with a thorough hand scrub including the fingertips.  A warm wet face cloth with a 'no more tears' baby shampoo is then applied to the eyelids since they are normally crusted with secretion. (This shampoo has a neutral pH and will not sting to the socket tissue or the fellow eye, plus it destroys bacteria.) The warm wet face cloth will soften the secretion allowing you to remove it by wiping inward toward the nose. (Do not wipe outward,...
