Abstract

The surgical correction of a case of bilateral isolated abortive cryptophthalmos is described. An upper eyelid and superior fornix were successfully created in a 2-stage procedure using a switch flap from the patient's normal lower eyelid and an amniotic membrane graft. Exposure keratopathy was significantly reduced with resultant visual improvement.
