Entropion is an inward turning of the eyelid so that the eyelashes rub against the surface of the eye causing damage to the cornea if not corrected. The condition may be present at birth or caused by the aging process, muscle spasms or scar tissue from a previous injury or burn. Most patients with entropion complain of excessive tearing, redness, irritation and pain around the eye, light and wind sensitivity and potentially loss of vision if damage to the cornea has occurred. If the cause of the entropion is age related, then an outpatient surgery to tighten the eyelid may be performed to correct the condition. If scar tissue is the cause, then an outpatient procedure to release the scar tissue and turn the eyelid to a normal position using a tissue graft may be performed.
