Abstract

Purpose: : To describe the results of a conservative technique for the treatment of progressive myopathic blepharoptosis using a "double-eyelid glue", which is a cosmetic made of natural rubber latex and has been used to give the appearance of an eyelid crease in Asian women with single eyelid.

Methods: : 11 consecutive patients with mitochondrial myopathy were studied. Marginal reflex distance (MRD-1), pictures and visual fields were obtained previously and after the treatment.

Results: : All patients described a better appearance after the application of the "double-eyelid glue" and none had allergic response to it. All cases had an increase in MRD-1 and improvement of the visual fields.

Keywords: eyelid • visual fields • keratitis
