Investigator Initiated Research
Inclusion open since 1-7-2008

Frontalis suspension with silicone rod has been our treatment of choice for adult patients with moderate or severe acquired neuro- or myogenic blepharoptosis with a moderate or poor levator function. This subset of patients is at risk to develop exposure keratitis and corneal ulceration. The objective of this study is to evaluate putative risk factors for corneal complications, including limited upgaze, orbicularis muscle weakness, preoperative punctata keratitis, preoperative VLF (0-3 mm), in this group of patients in a retrospective non-comparative consecutive case series of adults with acquired neuro- or myogenic blepharoptosis.
