Development of facial nerve palsy (FNP) may lead to dramatic change in the patient«SQ»s facial function, expression, and emotions. The ophthalmologist may play an important role in the initial evaluation, and the long-term management of patients with new-onset of FNP. In patients with expected temporary facial weakness, no efforts should be wasted to ensure proper corneal protection. Patients with permanent functional deficit may require combination of surgical procedures tailored to the patient«SQ»s clinical findings that may require good eye comfort and cosmesis.
