Study Of An Investigational Device For Eyelid Motility Disorders


Seeking people with eyelid motility disorder preventing their eyelids from opening and closing normally for a study of an investigational device.


Participants will be fitted with a pair of glasses and be provided with a magnetic tape to be applied to their eyelid daily. There will be 3 study visits in the first 6 months. After 6 months participants who want to continue can wear the investigational device for another 18 months and come in for study visits every 6 months.

What we're hoping for

We are studying whether a non-invasive investigational device worn by people who have a problem with eyelid movement helps them open and close their eyelids normally.
