Ectropion

Ectropion is a condition in which the eyelid falls or is pulled away from the eye. The commonest cause is ageing. It is also caused by skin scarring and facial palsy.

This condition causes irritated, watery, red eye with exposed conjunctiva.

Surgical treatment can involve horizontal tightening, vertical tightening, skin graft or a combination of these.
