What Is Ectropion?

Ectropion is a condition where the eyelid turns outward, away from the eye due to changes in the eyelid or damage. Patients may experience this condition as a result of various conditions, including:
  • Aging
  • Eyelid cancer
  • Facial paralysis
  • Previous surgery
  • Trauma
If ectropion goes untreated, it can cause a range of symptoms. They start out mild, but can progress the longer the condition is left on its own. Patients with ectropion may begin to experience symptoms in their eyes that include:
  • Pain
  • Discharge
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Damage to the eye and loss of vision (in more severe cases)

What Is Ectropion Repair Like?

Ectropion repair is a relatively simple outpatient surgery that typically can be completed in less than an hour. The first step is to administer local anesthesia to numb the area around the eye. Once you are comfortably sedated, Dr. Sohrab will make small incisions along your eyelid that allow for small adjustments. She will then gently reposition the eyelid and suture it into place.

Should I Get Ectropion Treatment?

If ectropion is left untreated, it can cause a host of problems for patients. In addition to the symptoms listed above, ectropion can also lead to corneal ulcers and scarring. These can be painful and may require further treatment. If you are experiencing any symptoms of ectropion, we recommend starting by seeing Dr. Sohrab for a consultation. She will be able to discuss your options with you to find a solution focused on helping you look and feel your best.
Patients also often can combine ectropion repair with other eyelid procedures or cosmetic surgery. Dr. Sohrab can advise you on effective combinations to bring out the best of your results and give your aesthetic a rejuvenated boost.

Ectropion Repair Recovery and Results

After ectropion surgery, it is normal for patients to experience some mild swelling, discomfort, and bruising around the eye. These symptoms should resolve on their own within a few days and can be managed with medication and aftercare. Additionally, patients may need to use artificial tears or ointments to keep their eyes lubricated during recovery. Dr. Sohrab will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your eyes following ectropion surgery.

Most patients will see an immediate improvement in their ectropion following surgery. The procedure creates immediate changes in the eyelid structures. However, your final results may not be visible for several weeks as your incisions heal and any swelling subsides. Any symptoms caused by the eyelid should also subside over time.
