Subjective: A fixed reduction in the vertical distance between the upper and lower eyelids with short palpebral fissuresComments:
This term is derived from Cunniff et al. . It is an acknowledged bundled term. When palpebral fissures are severely shortened, they cannot be widely separated, actively or passively. Ptosis is the term to be used when the reduction in eyelid opening is not fixed but can be increased actively or passively. Blepharophimosis is often associated with Epicanthus inversus.
