Entropion Eyelid Surgery
Entropion is in-turning of the eyelid margin. Usually, the lower eyelid is affected in this manner, but occasionally this may affect an upper eyelid.
This condition can cause chronic irritation and mattering of the eye. If untreated, it can cause corneal ulceration, infection and may lead to visual loss.
Correcting entropion of the lower lid involves tightening the eyelid, re-inserting the lower eyelid retractors and excising a small strip of Orbicularis muscle. This can be done from the skin approach or from the inside of the eyelid.
