1. Changes in corneal topography with upper eyelid gold weight implants.
Match Strength: 7.471
PURPOSE: To determine the effect of upper eyelid gold weight implantation on corneal astigmatism. METHODS: This is a prospective, cohort study. Eighteen eyes of 18 patients underwent upper eyelid gold weight implantation for facial nerve palsy. Nine of these patients recovered facial nerve function and underwent elective removal of the gold weight. Corneal topography was performed before and after gold weight implantation. Corneal topography was also performed after gold weight removal in patients who recovered from facial nerve paralysis. RESULTS: With-the-rule corneal astigmatism increased ... Read More »

2. Quantification of facial motion for objective evaluation using a high-speed three-dimensional face measurement system--a pilot study.
Match Strength: 7.204
OBJECTIVE: To estimate asymmetry in normal and pathological facial functions using an established computer generated objective evaluation technique. METHODS: Analysis was performed on three-dimensional (3-D) data captured using a specially designed 3-D face shape measurement system. Six healthy volunteers and six patients with Bell's palsy were analyzed for forced eye closure and grinning actions. The asymmetry was computed at locations that had the greatest effect in each action on both the left and right sides of the face, in reference to a relaxed condition. The patients' data were captured ... Read More »
