Müller muscle-conjunctiva resection. Technique for treatment of blepharoptosis.


A new technique for resecting the Müller muscle and the conjunctiva for correction of blepharoptosis has been developed. The operation is performed on all patients in whom a 10% phenylephrine hydrochloride solution instilled in the conjunctival cul-de-sac will elevate the blepharoptotic eyelid to a cosmetically acceptable level. The results of the surgery have been satisfactory in 27 of 28 operated eyelids.
