From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tarsorrhaphy is a surgical procedure in which the eyelids are partially sewn together to narrow the eyelid opening.[citation needed] It may be done to protect the cornea in cases of corneal exposure, as a treatment for Graves' ophthalmopathy, Möbius syndrome or after corneal graft surgery. The procedure is performed on the corner of the eyelid opening.[1]
