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.
