The eyelids are a delicate but essential factor in the overall health and comfort of your eyes.
What Are the Treatments for These Conditions?
There are a variety of nonsurgical and surgical options for treating entropion and ectropion. Although the nonsurgical treatments may relieve the symptoms temporarily, the most lasting results will come with surgery.
Depending on the symptoms, some conservative nonsurgical options would include lubricating eye drops, ointments, or even BOTOX injections combined with taping. In cases of entropion, contact lenses may be used to protect the cornea surface.
For long-lasting relief, eyelid surgery would repair the damaged tissues and restore the eyelids to their natural function, which would improve the overall health of the eyes.
