EYELID surgery is commonly indicated in small animal practice, frequently as a result of conformational defects (which are often breed-related) or neoplasia. This article aims to assist the practitioner in the decision making process when presented with a patient with ocular surface disease related to the eyelids. Some of the available surgical options are reviewed and their advantages and disadvantages compared. The author's general approach to eyelid surgery is to use the simplest technique(s) consistent with achieving the objective of a comfortable patient with optimised ocular function.
