A case of bilateral congenital eversion of the lids in a newborn is presented. The baby presented at the Eye Clinic of Otibhor Okhae Teaching Hospital about four hours after a spontaneous vaginal delivery. Surgical correction was carried out one eye at a time with absorbable sutures. Recovery was uneventful and normal anatomical configuration was regained 8-10 days post operatively. The aim of this case report is to create awareness among workers in maternity homes, primary health centres and other health institutions about the existence of this congenital anomaly. Prompt referral to the Ophthalmologist is advised, as the condition is very amenable to treatment.
