ophtho rotation

I finish my three weeks of ophthalmology rotation on Friday. Today I spent the morning in retina clinic and then observed some oculoplastic surgeries this afternoon in the O.R. I saw a lower lid ectropian (lid turned out) repair, an upper lid lowering for someone with thyroid eye disease, and a pediatric case where both an ENT doctor and an ophthalmologist inserted glass stents to reopen the nasolacrimal duct between the medial side of the eye to the nose.
