Figure 1: (a) Slit-lamp photography of supernumerary puncta of left eye lower lid, normal healthy puncta [black solid arrow], supernumerary puncta [solid white arrow]. (b) Cross-sectional image of both puncta obtained by AS-OCT, the deep funnel shaped hyporeflective spaces [solid white arrow] is normal healthy puncta. The hyperreflective epithelium of lid margin is continuous in both wall but abruptly thinned out at the margin of opening at temporal wall though nasal wall epithelium maintain its thickness throughout whole vertical depth. The shallow creeping edged tissue gap buried in the lid margin defines supernumerary puncta [asterix]. Here, lid margin epithelium is discontinuous in both the wall
