EYE CARE & EYE TAPING TECHNIQUE FOR BELL’S PALSY


I welcome you all to the Physio classroom channel In this second video of the bell’s palsy management series, we are going to talk about eye taping eye care is an important part of bell’s palsy management and as a physical therapist, we advice our patients to tackle two important eye problems out of which the first is inability to close the eye completely and the second problem is dryness of the eye If eye care is not done properly in bell’s palsy, then such patients become highly prone for developing eye infections, scarring and even loss of vision. As a therapist, we give our patients two important advises so that they can do their eye care properly First advice is regarding proper eye lubrication and second is good eye taping Patients are prescribed eye drops and eye lubricants by the physicians to maintain moisture of the eye As a therapist we also advice our patients to use eye drops multiple times during the day and apply eye lubricant in night before going to sleep It is also very important for Bell’s palsy patients to do eye taping especially before going to sleep Eye taping not only help the patients to give rest to their eyelids throughout the night but also in keeping the applied lubricant within the eye In today’s video, I have with me, my postgradute student, Neha Jawa, who is going to demonstrate the eye taping technique The commonest eye taping or eye patching technique that is taught to the patient is to simply cover the eye using an eye patch or a gauze some what like this: and then apply tape across the gauze like this But the main issue or problem with this type of taping or patching is that the upper eye lid can be closed but the lower eye lid still remains drooped this results in inefficient eye closure So Neha, tell our viewers the best way to tape the upper and lower eye lid Use this taping technique at night before going to sleep and remove the tape in the same way as shown in this video in the morning In the next video of bell’s palsy management series, we are going to talk about the role and effectiveness of electrical muscle Stimulation in Bell’s palsy So keep learning, keep sharing and stay connected
