Entropion Surgery

Entropion is an in-turning of the eyelid margin. This usually involves the lower eyelid, but occasionally may affect an upper eyelid.

This condition can cause 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. The can be done from the skin approach or from the inside of the eye.

Entropion repair is usually covered by insurance and can be performed as an outpatient.
