Entropion consists in an inversion (inward turning) of the free margin of the lower and/or upper eyelid, with a resulting contact of the eyelashes with the eye globe.
The continuous rubbing caused by this situation provokes a significant disturbance and compromises the surface of the cornea, which can develop various kinds of damage, from acute superficial kerititis to ulcers.
The corrective action is indicated when:
The clinical exam of the patient must establish the cause, the degree and the extension of the eyelid laxity and the eventual presence of conjunctival scars.
Based on the pre-operational considerations, changing from case to case, the therapies consist in:
Each patient will be guided and advised on the most suitable and cutting-edge surgical treatments, based on the most updated guidelines of the international surgical associations
The operation will be personalized and discussed during the pre-operational interview
The scars are not visible because the incisions follow the natural lines and creases of the face.
The eyelid gets back into its correct position: the operation attenuates the unpleasant outward turning with a significant reduction of the associated symptoms.
