What is entropion?
Entropion is a condition where the lower eyelid turns inwards towards the eyeball. It is often intermittent at first but can become permanent. The lashes are also turned in and scratch the eye, causing irritation, redness and excessive tear production. It is commonly caused by increasing age or scarring inside the eyelid.
How is it treated?
Entropion is usually corrected with surgery to evert the lid margin. Surgery is performed in day theatre under local anaesthesia, with a little bit of intravenous sedation to make you more comfortable.
