Abstract

One hundred and one cases of the blepharophimosis syndrome presenting over a decade are reviewed with particular attention to the factors influencing their visual development. Three distinct clinical patterns emerge--severe bilateral ptosis, moderate bilateral ptosis, and asymmetric ptosis--and their differing incidence of amblyopia and strabismus is discussed. The risk of amblyopia is much higher than previously believed (56.4% in our series) and preventive management is discussed.
