Redundant and lax eyelid skin and muscle is known as dermatochalasis. It is a degenerative disease of skin and muscles of lids and is commonly seen in elderly persons and occasionally in young adults. Gravity, loss of elastic tissue in the skin and weakening of the connective tissues of the eyelid frequently contribute to this laxicity. We report a case of upper lid dermatochalasis with the symptoms of eye strain and drooping of upper lid. This case was treated with transcutaneous blepharoplasty with acceptable cosmetic results.
