About Ectropion Repair
Ectropion is the outward turning of the eyelid margin that may aggravate the eye. A major cause of ectropion is eyelid laxity due to age-related weakening of muscles and ligaments in the area. Other causes of ectropion include scarring, facial palsy, or congenital conditions.
Effects of an ectropion lead to constant tearing, discomfort, redness, and irritation of the eye. A severe sagging of the eyelids prevents them from closing properly and makes them feel chronically sore and dry. There is also a chance of corneal changes that may lead to scarring to the eye’s surface, which may impact the vision.
