Entropion is when the eyelid flips inward, causing the lashes and skin to rub the eye surface.
Reasons for eye surgery
Entropion can lead to severe irritation, pain, redness, and blurry vision. When severe and left untreated, it can cause permanent scarring of the cornea and vision loss.
Entropion repair is done as a minor surgery in the office under local anesthesia, or under sedation on an outpatient basis. The type of repair depends on the exact nature of the problem.
