Isolated tarso-conjunctival superior eyelid traumatic laceration

International Ophthalmology, 05/08/2012

A 19 year–old male wounded by a bokken while practicing a sham duel had an isolated eyelid tarso–conjunctival laceration, without any other eyelid layer damage, neither skin nor muscle. Treatment was conservative without suture, by means of compressive occlusion fixing the pieces of broken tarsus in the correct position. The aim of the treatment was to avoid any wrong eyelid position secondary to healing. The eyelid maintained normal structure and movement in the follow–up at 8 months.
