The left eye of this gorgeous Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

hides a secret problem.





The lefts eye’s secrets: – 3 dermoids

(hairy skin in an abnormal location)

& lower lateral lid agenesis.



The treatment involved General Anaesthetic






Microsurgery and magnification with an operating

microscope was used to resect the abnormal


hairy areas and the lid was reconstructed

with a split-lid sliding autograft.

Finally a third eyelid flap was used to

protect the cornea.





The end result shows the cornea and

sclera minus their dermoids and the

lower lid has a normally appearing lid margin.
