|Abstract||Eyelid anomalies caused by congenital or acquired etiologies occur in birds. A cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus) was presented for evaluation of fused eyelids on the right side and a narrowed palpebral fissure on the left side after a burn accident. The right eyelids were reconstructed, and the left palpebral fissure was lengthened by using microsurgical techniques. The cockatiel regained a normal appearance after surgery, and corneal disease was prevented.|
