Excerpt

We recently read with interest the article by Vrcek et al1 describing their approach to conjunctival-sparing posterior ptosis surgery. We commend Vrcek et al1 on emphasizing the value of conjunctival-sparing posterior ptosis surgery.
We wish to bring attention to a conjunctival-sparing posterior ptosis technique published in 1979 by our mentor, Dr. Dortzbach.2 Dr. Dortzbach’s technique, emphasizing anatomical preservation including the conjunctiva and accessory lacrimal glands, is notably similar to the procedure described by Vrcek et al.1 In the future, when the topic of conjunctival-sparing posterior ptosis surgery is discussed, we hope that authors and readers will recall this original article.
