  • What is an ectropion repair?

  1. People undergo ectropion repair to correct a condition where the lower eyelid turns outward, causing the inner surface of the eyelid to be exposed. This can lead to symptoms such as irritation, dryness, tearing, redness, and increased risk of eye infections. Ectropion repair aims to alleviate these symptoms, improve eye comfort, restore proper eyelid function, and prevent complications such as corneal damage or chronic eye discomfort.
