Entropion

What is entropion?

Entropion causes the eyelid to turn or roll inwards. It then rubs against the eyeball and causes irritation.   It usually affects the lower eyelid..

The operation

The aim of the treatment is to return the eyelid to its normal position. An incision is made just beneath the eyelashes on the lower eyelid. We look for the muscle and then return it to its normal position. Absorbable sutures are used. 
We usually slightly over-correct the eyelid during the operation, meaning that at first your eyelashes will turn outwards slightly too much. Our experience has shown that the eyelid turns slightly inwards again of its own accord. 
The skin is secured using non-absorbable sutures which are then removed a week later by a doctor.
