Entropion/Ectropion (turning eyelid)
As we age the eyelid tissue and underlying support system weakens which may lead to an eyelid that sags, turns out or turns inward toward the eye. A poorly positioned eyelid can lead to damage of the ocular surface and should be repaired if this is the case. There are several other reasons why an eyelid may be malpositioned which your surgeon can explain to you at the time of your consultation. Repair of eyelid position can be done in the office under local anesthetic and has minimal downtime.
