Abstract

Preoperatively, with the patient sitting up, the center of the pupillary axis is marked on the eyelid margin (Figure 163.1). Intraoperatively, this mark is used to align the Müller’s muscle-conjunctival resection (MMCR) clamp. The clamp is centered above this mark, thus ensuring that the highest archpoint of the clamp is aligned above the pupil. This provides proper lid contour postoperatively.
