It can be discomforting or even irritating if you experience entropion or ectropion, two concerns that involve the eyelids turning inward or outward, respectively. Entropion– an inward-turning eyelid– can cause discomfort, watery eyes, infection, eyelid crusting, or even impaired vision from your eyelashes scratching the surface of the eye. Ectropion — an outward-turning eyelid — exposes the eye to more bacteria and foreign agents that may result in pain, redness and watery eyes, and possible discharge. Inward and outward eyelid correction can not only alleviate any symptoms you experience but can grant a greater peace of mind.

Correcting Inward or Outward-Turning Eyelids
Usually, entropion and ectropion both require surgery to correct. Surgery can help prevent further damage to the eye while improving eye health and securing greater vision capabilities. Patients can expect that their procedure will be performed under a local anesthetic and monitored sedation to ensure optimal comfort.
Suitable Candidates for Ectropion and Entropion Surgery
Ideal candidates for either of these procedures are those whose:
- Lower eyelashes turn inward and scratch their eyes
- Eyelids turn outward and away from the eyes
- Eyelids do not properly meet when closed
- Eyes have accrued damage from an injury
- Tears do not spread over the eyeball
During your consultation, one of our certified team members will carefully evaluate your eyes and ask several questions regarding the concern. Additionally, certain aspects of your medical history will be discussed in order to properly determine your candidacy for surgery.
