Ectropion is a “rolling out” of the eyelid, often causing it to hang away from the eye. If left untreated, this may lead to discomfort, drying, redness, scarring and loss of vision.
There are several ways an ectropion can be repaired, some involving only a ten to 20 minute outpatient procedure. You and your doctor will determine the most appropriate treatment for your specific problem.
