Ectropion happens when your lower eyelid turns out, which can result from the weakening of the eyelid muscles. It can also happen as a result of facial palsy, previous eye injury or surgery, or a congenital defect.

Symptoms of Ectropion can include dry, painful eyes, excess tearing of the eye, and redness of the lid and white part of the eye.

Immediate treatment of this condition is prescription eye drops to keep the eye hydrated. Surgery can be performed to restore the proper lid position. The surgery is an outpatient procedure which requires local anesthesia.

There are several surgical techniques to correct the condition, based on the severity. Stitches are necessary and an eye patch should be worn for 24 hours after the surgery. You will be prescribed an antibiotic ointment as well, to prevent infection.
