Abstract

In this article, correction of orbital hypertelorism in Oriental patients is summarized. An orbital osteotomy is currently used to correct an abnormally wide interorbital distance. At present, associated deformities such as a short nose and a depression deformity in the temporal region following orbital osteotomy can be partially corrected. In Oriental patients, the Mongolian fold can be enhanced after correction of orbital hypertelorism. This fold can be easily corrected by epicantoplasty.
