Abstract: Purpose: To describe the results of a conservative and reversible technique for the treatment of progressive myopathic blepharoptosis in cases when surgery is not indicated, using octyl-2-cyanoacrylate liquid bandage.Methods: Ten consecutive patients with progressive myopathic blepharoptosis were studied. Octyl-2-cyanoacrylate liquid bandage was applied to the upper eyelid to create a deeper eyelid crease. Margin reflex distance, photographs, and visual fields were obtained prior to and after treatment.Results: All patients described a better appearance after application of the product, and none had an allergic response. All cases had an increase in the margin reflex distance and improvement in visual fields.Conclusion: Octyl-2-cyanoacrylate liquid bandage is an alternative method that is simple, safe, and effective in the management of severe blepharoptosis. Moreover, it can be used in patients without systemic conditions or those who are unwilling to undergo a surgical procedure.
