We describe an extremely rare cause of orbital myositis, an inflammation of the muscles that turn the eye, caused by an auto-immune reaction to a distant primary tumor. The paper has been published in Orbit, a renowned peer reviewed scientific paper since it raises awareness of this diagnostic possibility when patients present with painful eyes, swelling of the ocular mucosa and an inability to move their eyes.
It was a true pleasure to be able to assist and present at the national Dutch Ophthalmologic Society (NOG) congress again last month. Since the pandemic I have not been able to see and talk to my Dutch colleagues in person and it was great to finally be able to see everybody in person again.
Droopy eyelid correction: Scarless. Sutureless. Effective. Correcting a droopy eyelid from the inside of the eyelid, making no incision, nor a scar, in the skin and without putting any sutures is a very attractive option to correct droopy eyelids. Dr. van der Veen has introduced this sutureless version of droopy eyelid correction both in the Netherlands and in Spain with many satisfied patients as a result.
La blefaroplastia es una intervención de corta duración, alta predictibilidad con un gran efecto positivo en el aspecto físico y la autoestima de la paciente.
Bij de Marebrug kliniek hebben wij de unieke positie om de aller nieuwste technieken binnen de cosmetische oogheelkundige chirurgie te combineren met veel verschillende aanvullende behandelingen. Denk hierbij aan het gebruik van Botox en Hyaluronzuur fillers, maar ook aan behandelingen met radiofrequentie apparatuur voor de behandeling van vet op ongewenste plaatsen, of Icoon bindweefselmassage in het gelaat of elders in het lichaam.
Starting October 2022 we launched our practice for cosmetic eyelid surgery in the Mareburg Kliniek in Utrecht. Saying goodbye to our previous workplace means that we will not be doing as much reconstructive work as before and that we will have a stronger focus on cosmetic eyelid surgery and everything that belongs to that, i.e. eyebrow lifts, Botuline toxine (BTX) treatments and facial fillers, to name a few. Feel free to check out the wide array of available treatments at www.marebrugkliniek.nl.
No. In our case that doesn´t mean slowing down... In the last week and a half, we operated over 45 patients divided over our hospitals and private practices in Spain and in the Netherlands.
Dr. van der Veen and colleagues presented two posters on interesting and challenging oculoplastic and orbital cases, where, although less common, surgery was not the solution for the patient.
It was a real pleasure to present and learn at the latest OculoplasticToday meeting in Tel Aviv, Israel.
March 18th dr. van der Veen had the pleasure on lecturing on advanced treatments for the tearing eye. A problem often perceived as innocent by the ophthalmologist, but something that can greatly affect the quality of life of the patient that suffers from it on a daily bases. Studies have shown that people even perceive as much inconvenience from a chronically tearing eye as they do from a dense cataract.
It is good news for both my patients and myself to finally be able to visit and operate again in our beautiful facility in Utrecht!
It was great to receive dr. Otto Wolter in my new hometown of BCN!
