Abstract To the Editor. —I read with interest the article in the March Archives by Wood and Anderson entitled "Complications of Cryosurgery" (1981;99:460-463). I have modified the cryoprobe by reducing the tip diameter and honing it to a sharp point (Fig 1). This permits direct application to the base of the eyelashes (Fig 2). By using this modified cryoprobe, rather than a broad bevel tip, less freezing time is required. I have achieved results similar to the authors with less severe cryosurgery reaction and no eyelid notching. It is unnecessary to epilate the eyelashes, as they fall out spontaneously in approximately one week.Anderson and Harvey1 have demonstrated the benefits of cryosurgery in congenital and acquired distichiasis as well as in intraepithelial epitheliomas. I hope they will continue their work in the field of cryogenics.1.
