Abstract

The floppy eyelid syndrome represents a chronic conjunctivitis characterized by a triad of (1) a loose upper lid that readily everts on elevating the lid, (2) a soft rubbery tarsus that can be folded on itself, and (3) a diffuse papillary conjunctivitis. Seven cases of this condition are reported, all involving men, and four involving obese patients.
