A frontalis sling procedure for ptosis repair, employing preserved human bank sclera and polyfilament, cable-type, ophthalmic (Supramid Extra) suture in combination has been devised and tried. Results indicate that these two readily available materials that are now used separately may be combined for lid suspension. They are easy to work with and produce lasting results.
