A 52-year-old female presented with a history of bull horn injury to the right eye. Examination revealed an avulsed flap of right lower eyelid starting from a point just lateral to the lacrimal punctum up to the lateral canthus without any other ocular or orbital damage. After a thorough assessment and cleaning, lid flap was sutured in layers. Postoperative antibiotic prophylaxis was given. Eyelid wound healed without complications.
