What Is Entropion?

Entropion is a condition where the eyelid turns inward, towards the eye. When this happens, not only can it have a cosmetic effect on your appearance, but it can irritate or even damage the eye. The good news is that we can easily treat it through entropion repair surgery to get your eyelids back to looking and working at their best.
The condition of entropion can be caused by a number of things, including:
  • Aging and the resulting weakening of the muscles and ligaments that hold the eyelid in place
  • Trauma to the area
  • Tumors or other growths that push on the eyelid
  • Scarring from previous surgery or injury
No matter what the cause, entropion repair surgery is a relatively straightforward procedure that Dr. Sohrab matches to your individual needs.

What Is Entropion Repair Like?

Dr. Sohrab performs entropion repair surgery as an outpatient procedure, which means you can go home the same day. The surgery itself is relatively short, taking only about 30 minutes to an hour to complete in most cases. However, this can be longer if you decide to combine the procedure with other options as well. Most of the time, local anesthetic is enough to keep you comfortable, but you have the option of IV sedation as well. The procedure involves Dr. Sohrab making subtle adjustments to the eyelid structures, repositioning them to a healthier and more appealing position. The incisions are all as small as possible and hidden in the natural structures of the eyelid so no scarring should be visible.

Should I Get Entropion Treatment?

If you are dealing with entropion, the good news is that surgery can usually correct the problem quickly and easily. If left untreated, entropion can cause serious irritation or even damage to the eye. This can lead to pain, tearing, redness, and light sensitivity. In some cases, entropion can also make it difficult to wear contact lenses or put makeup on around the eye. So if you have noticed any of these signs, the best option is usually to schedule your consultation with Dr. Sohrab. During your meeting with her, she can examine your situation and match you with a treatment to help you find relief and restore the aesthetic of your eyelids at the same time.
