Congenital upper eyelid eversion is a rare condition characterized by the prolapse of chemosed palpebral conjunctiva from everted eyelids. Initial conservative management option commonly used in the treatment was unsuccessful in resolving the condition in our patient. However, temporary tarsorrhaphy resulted in satisfactory resolution. This case gives further credence to the effectiveness of temporary tarsorrhaphy as a surgical option in the management of congenital upper eyelid eversion.
