ectropion eye

This article will tell you how ectropion can develop, and indicates common symptoms.

A healthy eyelid hugs the surface of the eye, protecting it and keeping it moist. If the eyelid turns outward, it leaves sensitive areas of the eye exposed. This is often due to a condition called Ectropion, which can result in a burning sensation, excessive tearing, and unsightly reddening of the eye.

Ectropion can be diagnosed with a routine eye exam. This condition does not usually go away on its own, and requires treatment by an eye care professional to restore the eyelids to their normal positions.
