The patient lost vision in his left eye due to a cyst in the sphenoid sinus, which had extended to the brain and was pressing on the optic nerve.

The eyesight of a man, who is in his fifties, was restored 25 days after he went blind in his left eye, thanks to a 45-minute rare and precise surgery conducted by Dubai Hospital doctors.

The patient lost vision in his left eye due to a cyst in the sphenoid sinus, which had extended to the brain and was pressing on the optic nerve.

Dr Iyad Hamadi, ENT consultant at Dubai Hospital, pointed out that the surgery needed high expertise because of the critical location of the cyst and its extension to the brain and optic nerve.

He said that upon receiving the patient, a medical team from Dubai Hospital carried out the required examinations and tests. During the surgery, which took 45 minutes under general anaesthesia, an endoscopic procedure was conducted through the sphenoid sinus to remove the cyst.

Dr Hamadi said that the operation was successfully completed without any complications and the patient’s vision gradually began to improve a few hours after the procedure. It was completely retrieved two weeks after the surgery.
