The epicanthic or epicanthal fold is a skin fold of the upper eyelid that covers the inner corner (medial canthus) of the eye. It can be present in people with or without double eyelids. Epicanthic folds have a tendency to make the eyes appear further apart, especially in those with low nose bridges.
