Ectropion

What is Ectropion?


Ectropion | Physicians Eye ClinicEctropion is a medical condition in which the lower eyelid is turned outward so that the inner surface of the lid is exposed. The lower lid often has an inflamed and sagging appearance. Ectropion may result in dryness, irritation and tearing. The most common cause of ectropion is aging, which weakens the connective tissue of the eyelid and allows it to turn outwards. Lubricating drops may provide temporary relief of dry eye symptoms. Surgery is usually needed in order to tighten the eyelid muscles.
