This 3-year old boy was referred because of left congenital ptosis. The left visual axis was occluded and refraction shows significant astigmatism with decreased vision. Left frontalis suspension was performed with 2/0 prolene and the patient was able to keep the eye open despite being amblyopic. Post-operatively, he was given glasse. Patching was also carried out on the right eye to improve the left vision.
