Emory Eye Center news tip: those alluring eyelashes best left to nature
(ATLANTA) Oculoplastic surgeons at the Emory Eye Center are concerned about the recent news blitz seen in national media outlets promoting the positive aspects of eyelash transplants. The outcome isn’t always good. In fact, surgical augmentation of eyelashes can lead to trichiasis (inward-growing lashes) and vision-threatening complications, say Emory Eye Center oculoplastics specialists. A paper addressing these concerns, “Trichiasis after Eyelash Augmentation with Hair Follicle Transplantation,” co-authored by Anna Murchison and Ted Wojno will appear in the journal, Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in the spring, published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Emory Eye Center specialist saves patient's life: Joe Labadia's amazing will to win
Joe LaBadia is a former pro-football player, drafted by the Jets in 1978. A youngish and fit 40-something, an involved father and husband, Joe had everything to live for. A good job, a fine home, and a seemingly charmed life in the sunny South. His father's funeral back in Joe's home state of New Jersey may have saved his life. It was then that relatives and friends noticed that Joe didn't look right. One of his eyes bulged, and his own immediate family had not noticed, often the case with changes that occur subtly and slowly over time.

Another danger for women smokers: higher risk of basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid
Women smokers may face a higher risk of a common skin cancer of the eyelid, reports Emory Eye Center oculoplastic surgeon Ted H. Wojno, M.D., at this week’s American Academy of Ophthalmology in New Orleans. Dr. Wojno’s recent study compared 112 patients with biopsy-proven basal cell carcinoma of the eyelid with patients undergoing other lid surgeries. Overall, the study found that patients who smoked were not more likely to develop basal cell carcinomas, but when the data were adjusted for gender, women smokers were more likely than male smokers to develop this type of skin cancer.
