• Nonincisional suture techniques are used for the treatment of epiblepharon and congenital entropion. An explanation for the unstable eyelid seems to involve similar developmental anomalies of the eyelid retractor. Congenital entropion has been treated promptly in the past. Contrary to tradition, symptomatic epiblepharon should also be treated early.
