Many techniques have been described for lateral canthopexy. Here, we describe a technical modification of lateral canthopexy that involves percutaneous placement of a canthopexy suture through the confluence of the lateral superior and inferior grey lines or lateral canthal angle. A total of 52 canthopexies in 26 patients have been performed with excellent results and few complications. Our lateral canthopexy modification is a minimally invasive technique that is simple to perform, with absolute assurance of capturing the lateral canthal tendon.
