Müller’s Muscle-Conjunctival Resection Pearls: Phenylephrine and Resection Considerations
The goal of blepharoptosis repair is to elevate the eyelids to an acceptable level while maintaining proper contour, lid crease, and final symmetry of eyelid height to within 0.5 mm. Müller’s muscle-conjunctival resection (MMCR)1 predictably attains these goals because the correction is consistently titratable according to published2 or personal nomograms. MMCR is the preferred approach to raise an eyelid by 2.5 mm or less in patients with a positive phenylephrine test.
