Abstract

The levator muscle of the upper lid is resected transconjunctivally as described by Wolff in 1896, the procedure is however improved by our present knowledge of more rigorous but controlled shortening of that muscle and by the use of the present most delicate suturing procedure. The sutures remain in situ and the stay in hospital is reduced to one or two days.
