We report a case of a 2-month-old baby with bilateral nonsyndromic partial cryptophthalmos presenting with upper eyelid incomplete development and fusion to the cornea with resultant inability to close the eyes. He was managed successfully with bilateral upper lid reconstruction with composite graft using maternal skin and oral mucous membrane, amniotic membrane, and donor scleral graft. After this one stage surgery, lids were well-formed, and the patient was able to close both eyes, thus achieving good anatomical, functional, and cosmetic outcome.
