Telecanthus

  • Telecanthus literally means that the corners of the eyes (canthi) are far away (tele) from each other
  • It is a condition in which the intercanthal distance is greater than the width of the eye
    • Normal range of intercanthal distance is 30-35mm
  • In this, the interpupillary distance remains normal
  • Telecanthus should be differentiated from hypertelorism (here the interpupillary distance is increased)
