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.

The latest epicanthoplasty techniques give relatively inconspicuous scars, and are often performed with the double eyelid procedure to enhance the result.
