Eyelid Weights, External

Definition : Eyelid weights designed for external attachment to the eyelid to provide additional weight. These devices are typically metal (frequently tantalum) weights in a range from 0.5 to 2.0 grams that are externally fixed by the patient to the upper part of the eyelid using disposable adhesive strips; they are available in a variety of colors to match patient's skin. External eyelid weights are used in the temporary treatment of partial facial paralysis in which the eye cannot be completely closed (i.e., lagophthalmos) or when the implantation of eyelid weights is not possible or desirable; their use reduces the risk of ocular exposure and improves the appearance of the face.
