Graded full-thickness anterior blepharotomy has been used to treat eyelid retraction in adult patients with thyroid eye disease. We report 2 children diagnosed with upper eyelid retraction who underwent a modified full-thickness anterior blepharotomy. In both cases, symptoms resolved and cosmetically acceptable outcomes were achieved.
