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