Lower Lid Retractor Dissection

  • Jeffrey P. Edelstein


When dissecting lower eyelid retractors from the conjunctiva, inject anesthetic (I use 2% lidocaine with epinephrine between the conjunctiva and retractors to “hydrodissect” a plane). This makes the sharp dissection easier and reduces the chance for buttonholing the conjunctiva. It works!
