abstract
Upper eyelid retraction is a well-known component of Graves' disease. With greater degrees of retraction, corneal exposure is usually increased. We report here on a patient with corneal perforation following exposure keratopathy due to upper eyelid retraction. The patient was treated with penetrating keratoplasty and an upper eyelid lengthening procedure using Goretex^[○!R] dura substitute as an interpositional graft material. The exposure keratopathy resolved postoperatively and this condition has been maintained for 45 months since the operation, with a good cosmetic outcome and symmetry of the palpebral fissures.
