WHAT IS AN EYELID REPAIR?
Having an abnormally curved or otherwise distorted eyelid can cause vision problems, as well as pain and discomfort. Entropion and ectropion are conditions that affect the health and shape of the eyelid and could contribute to vision loss or other eye-related concerns. Patients with entropion or ectropion often experience irritation and inflammation to the eye, as well as redness and other problems. Thankfully, our highly skilled ophthalmologists at The Eye Center of Southern Indiana have mastered the techniques necessary to repair entropion and ectropion at our Bloomington, IN office. While entropion affects the lower eyelid and causes it to turn inward onto the surface of the eye, ectropion occurs when the lower eyelid turns too far outward, which causes the exposure of much of the eye's surface and lower tissues.
