Entropion Eyelid Surgery

Eye Discomfort & Irritation? Try Entropion Eyelid Surgery

What Is Entropion?

Entropion means that the lower eyelid is “rolled in” toward the eye, often causing the eyelashes to rub on the surface of the eye. This can cause eye irritation or the sensation of a foreign body in the eye. If your eyelid is turned in and is causing you discomfort, the doctors at Rock Hill Eye Clinic may be able to help you.

What Are the Symptoms of Entropion?

If entropion is not treated, the condition may lead to chronic tearing, light sensitivity, eye irritation, redness, pain, or a breakdown of the eye surface due to the constant rubbing of the lashes on the eye. The eye surface may develop a painful abrasion, ulcer, or scarring if the condition is not treated.

How Can Entropion Eyelid Surgery Help You?

It is important to have surgical correction of an entropion to prevent harmful damage to the eye surface. The success of this surgery is quite high and most patients report immediate relief of the eye irritation with little, if any, post-operative discomfort. Schedule a consultation with our eye doctors to see if this procedure is right for you.
