CONCLUSION

Effects of CIC

In most people, the infection spreading from the nasal/sinus areas is just a source of irritation. However, in some patients, this spread of infection can lead to more serious infective conditions. Probably the most serious & rarest of all is meningitis. But many other more common infective conditions can occur, especially involving the tissues surrounding the eyes. Such examples are eyelid infections, blocked tear ducts, orbital (of the eye socket) infections, corneal ulcers etc.

CIC can also contribute to some external eye problems in more subtle ways. It can interfere with proper healing of the outer layer of the corneal tissue (epithelium) in cases of recurrent corneal erosion syndrome. (See Part I(D).) CIC can also pre-dispose to mild bleeding under the conjunctiva (sub-conjunctival haemorrhage). Twitching of the eyelids (tic) may also be partly due to the irritative effects of CIC.
