Medical myths develop when existing beliefs are not challenged. They remind us that we can be mistaken and need to question ourselves. Oculoplasty, a vital branch of ophthalmology, has been of interest to surgeons since olden days. This field has seen transformative changes in the last few years in light of new understanding and sophisticated techniques. In this write-up, we wish to address a dozen of these “unchallenged” myths which may not be wrong concepts but conventional approaches that need renewed thinking.
