Lagophthalmos is the incomplete or defective closure of the eyelids. Eyelid closure and the blink reflex are essential for a healthy corneal surface, maintaining ocular surface lubrication and also as protection from a foreign body in the event of an injury.

External eyelid weights are a temporary solution for paralytic lagophthalmos that aim to restore functionality to the eyelid during the transitional rehabilitation period.
