Abstract. Purpose:To report the outcome of surgery for blepharoptosis with adjunct use of short-pulsed carbon dioxide laser. Cases and Method:This study was made on 40 eyes of 21 cases who received tucking of Müller muscle after Miyata. The redundant skin of the eyelid was resected using a carbon dioxide laser. The vertical eyelid opening was measured by margin reflex distance(MRD)and by Goldmann perimetry. Results:MRD averaged 0.55±0.73 mm before and 2.42±0.73 mm after surgery. Superior vertical visual field significantly improved from presurgical 19.4±8.9°to postsurgical 39.7±7.8°(p<0.001). When compared with the conventional method,anatomical visibility improved due to lesser hemorrhage with minimum swelling or ecchymosis after surgery. There was no case of recurrence of blepharoptosis. Conclusion:Surgery for blepharoptosis with adjunct use of short-pulsed carbon dioxide laser was effective with lesser hemorrhage and postoperative complications.
