partial or complete obstruction of the lacrimal puncta occurs when a conjunctival membrane or flap is present over the opening.
conjunctival flap
surgical movement and fixation of conjunctiva, either bulbar or palpebral, to cover defects in conjunctiva or, more commonly, to cover lacerations or nonhealing, progressive or deep ulcerations of the cornea especially those with desmetoceles. The flaps serve to protect the corneal lesion from eyelid trauma and encourage migration and proliferation of fibroblasts and blood vessels into the area. There are many techniques; some utilize the nictitating membrane.
conjunctival grafts
defects of conjunctiva may be grafted with conjunctiva obtained from elsewhere in the same eye or the opposite eye. Buccal mucosa has also been used for this purpose.
conjunctival granuloma
see nodular fasciitis.
conjunctival sac
the tear-filled space, lined by conjunctiva, between the eyelids and the eyeball.
