Management of the Eye in Facial Paralysis.

The preoperative assessment of the eye in facial paralysis is a critical component of surgical management.

Eyelid reanimation allows an aesthetic symmetry with blinking and restores protective functions vital to ocular preservation. Patients often have multiple nervous deficits, including corneal anesthesia. Other procedures include tarsorrhaphy, spring implantation, and temporalis muscle transposition; associated complications have rendered them nearly obsolete.
