Abstract

The Fasanella-Servat operation for correction of blepharoptosis in cases where the function of the levator muscle is good can be performed effectively without the use of sutures, thus eliminating the possible complication of corneal abrasion in the postoperative period. The author has performed 12 sutureless operations with satisfactory correction in 11 cases.
