*Dr. Caccamise has very generously shared his images of patients taken while operating during the "eye season" in rural India as well as those from his private practice during the 1960's and 1970's. Many of his images are significant for their historical perspective and for techniques and conditions seen in settings in undeveloped areas.

This is a congenital variant in which there is partial fusion of the lid margins. Usually this fusion involves the temporal aspects of the lid - as in this patient. The fusion is seen much more readily in the monocular photo. Normally no treatment is required unless the patient insists on cosmetic surgery - by an oculoplastic surgeon.
