In-Turned Eyelid (Entropion)

Entropion is an eyelid malposition that is most common in elderly adults. It causes extreme irritation because the eyelid rolls inward toward the eye creating friction between the eye and eyelashes. As a result, the eyes become red, light sensitive, and irritated.

It is important to treat entropion early because it can ultimately lead to chronic eye pain and can even lead to the loss of an eye. Treatment for entropion involves an outpatient procedure and has a high success rate.
