Inferior rectus muscle recession tends to retract the lower eyelid. Several surgical techniques have been recommended to minimize this problem. This study compared Lockwood ligament advancement with lower lid retractor lysis (capsulopalpebral fascia disinsertion) and found that the latter technique, performed simultaneously with inferior rectus recession, more effectively minimizes postoperative lower lid retraction.
