Abstract:
This invention relates to a forceps for the correction of eyelid ptosis and performing a conjunctival-Müllerectomy comprising a disposable hook-shaped central needle that can retract to a predefined distance as the forceps blades close to clamp and hold the tissues, which obviates the need for an assistant and traction sutures.
