Re(1): inturning eyelid Posted on September 4, 2013 at 08:30:06 AM by Prof Chua
I turning eyelid is also known medically as entropion. It can be a very uncomfortable condition because of the rubbing of eyelashes against the cornea which is the colored part of the eye. In severe cases this can cause visual impairment. There are several surgical methods of correcting the condition the easiest is with everting sutures but this procedure is not lasting and recurrence is common. If you have had operations done and the eyelid still turned in its likely you this was the procedure done. Other method can give a better and more permanent result but I need to see you before deciding on the best course of action Replies: There have been no replies.
