Burns is a common problem in India. The most common
cause is suicidal, where the patient pours kerosene over
one self and lights on fire. Eyelid injuries are common in
such instances. When left to heal by secondary intention,
it leads to contracture and thereby leading to the dreadful
complication of ectropion. Conventional Tarsorapphy

describe a non invasive method of tarsorapphy to prevent
eyelid ectropion
