This space is free of the subepithelial adhesions that bind the superior palpebral conjunctiva to the tarsal plate
Foreign bodies may lodge on cornea, tarsal plate
or penetrate the globe.
The posterior lamella includes the tarsal plate
and the palpebral conjunctiva.
Also, the flexible nature of a chain allows for better alignment of the implant with the contour of the tarsal plate
A chalazion is a chronic, sterile, lipgranulomatous inflammation of the meibomian gland within the tarsal plate
(Table 1) (Figure 1).
We defined VKC on the basis of history and the presence of conjunctival papillae 1mm diameter over the upper tarsal plate
and/or limbal hypertrophy.
It is an easier and safer procedure as does not require penetration of tarsal plate
or cyst wall.
The tarsal plate
appeared quite lax and was everted easily.
It is helpful to consider the eyelid as having an anterior and posterior portion; anteriorly consisting of the subcutaneous skin, eyelash and glands of Zeis and Moll; posteriorly, the tarsal conjunctiva and the tarsal plate
housing the meibomian glands.
5 cm, had distinct margins, and was firmly adherent to the tarsal plate
