Chronic progressive external ophthalmoplegia (CPEO) is a condition where all the external eye muscles gradually become paralyzed. The cause is in the DNA. CPEO is a slowly progressing and rare disease that may affect those of all ages, but typically manifests in the young adult years. The first presenting symptom of ptosis is often unnoticed by the patient until the lids droop to the point of producing a visual field defect. Often, patients will tilt the head backwards to adjust for the ptosis of the lids. In addition, as the ptosis becomes more severe, the patients will use the frontalis (forehead) muscle to help elevate the lids. The ptosis is typically bilateral, but it may be unilateral for a period of months to years before the other lid becomes involved.

SYMPTOMS

First and most striking features are: the drooping upper eyelids of both eyes (with obstructed vision).

Other features include:
  • Impaired eye movements, making it increasingly difficult and necessary to move the head to see and follow. This progresses very slowly.
  • The hard squint of the eyes is difficult and possibly also other muscles of the face, neck, shoulders and limbs can become weaker.
There are very serious forms of CPEO:  Kearns Sayre Syndrome / KSS  & ocular pharyngeal dystrophy / OPMD / ocular pharyngeal muscular dystrophy

TREATMENT 

There is no treatment that can stop the progress of CPEO. There are a number of small studies that have indicated that administration of coenzyme Q10 may slow the process. However, some symptoms caused by CPEO be treated, such as ptosis.

Lily Leading Instant Eye Lift is a thin invisible comfortable high quality medical grade, upper eyelid strip made of silicon, known and used after (plastic) surgery to improve wound healing and reduce the forming of scar tissue. The Lily strips provide the support necessary to lift and shape the sagging upper eyelid skin, resulting in a symmetrical, natural and youthful shape of the eyes, making them look rejuvenated, brightened and healthy, without side effects in just seconds. Lily comes with a protective and nourishing gel. The gel improves adhesion and makes repositioning of the strips and removal easy without damaging the delicate skin of the upper eyelid. The results are amazing.

Lily has no effect on other symptoms or progression of any disease. Note: Results may vary depending on the nature, cause and severity of the ptosis and the way Lily is applied.
