What Is Entropion?

Entropion is a medical condition in which the eyelid rolls inward, though the degree and vary. In more severe cases, it can cause the eyelashes to rub against the eyeball and lead to several issues. These can include severe discomfort, vision problems, and inflammation if the condition is not addressed in a timely manner. Entropion also has a significant cosmetic effect. Because of this, many patients find it can affect their self-esteem as well.
This condition is most commonly caused by age-related laxity of facial muscles or skin conditions such as dermatochalasis (excess skin around the eyes). However, it can be brought about by several other risk factors. It also proves important to treat entropion in its earlier stages before it can affect or damage the eye itself.

Risk Factors for Entropion

There are several risk factors associated with the development of entropion, including age, genetics, anatomy, and chronic eye irritation. Those who have had previous eye or facial surgery may also be more prone to developing entropion. However, each individual is different, and we recommend any patient who notices eyelid changes to seek out a professional opinion sooner rather than later. The sooner you receive an evaluation and treat any issues, the less risk they can pose to your overall health.

The surgery makes immediate and lasting changes to the eyelid structures. So, patients can expect to see some results right away.
