Patients were selected according to inclusion and exclusion criteria. All selected patients’ detail history regarding symptoms, systemic illness, occupation taken. Thorough ocular examination done. After that schirmer’s test was performed and results noted.</p> <p><strong>Result</strong>: According to schirmer’s test results 256 patients found to have Dry eye disease so we found Incidence of Dry eye disease 12.6%. Out of 256 patients High Incidence of Dry eye disease found in Age Group of (51-60) years(25%), Female to male ratio was 3:2; more common symptoms foreign body sensation (22%), burning (21%), Tearing (18%) and Dryness (16%) seen, Retired personals (old ages) (27%), Labourer worker (17.2%), Housewives (15.6%) and Factory Worker (13.7%) are more commonly associated occupation. In regards to schirmer’s test results for severity of dry eye disease 38% eyes with mild (6-10 mm), 47% with moderate (2-5 mm) and 14% with severe (&lt;2 mm) found.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong>: We have observed 12.6% incidence of Dry Eye Disease in Eye OPD at Tertiary Health Care Center. Dry eye disease now becoming a common ocular problem and need to make standardise diagnostic guidelines for its severity.</p> 2023-01-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Author (s).

The classical triad consists of bilateral upper eyelids overriding the lower eyelids, bilateral medial and lateral canthal tendon laxity, and tarsal conjunctival congestion. We report a case of congenital combined eyelid imbrication and floppy eyelid syndrome in a healthy neonate that was resolved within five days with conservative management. In adults, eyelid imbrication is usually associated with floppy eyelid syndrome which requires surgical correction.</p> 2022-12-26T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Author (s).

Descemet’s membrane detachment (DMD) is also relatively common after cataract surgery. The purpose of this study is to present a case report on the visual outcome after penetrating keratoplasty in an elderly female with longstanding pseudophakic bullous keratopathy with descemet’s membrane detachment, who presented to cornea clinic with gradual progressive diminution of vision, five years after cataract surgery. Penetrating keratoplasty with a healthy donor cornea helped salvaging her visual outcome.</p> 2023-01-09T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Author (s).
