Often known as Ectropion. This is a condition where the lower eyelid turns outwards. Many patients complain of dryness, discomfort, redness and excessive tearing often with the tears streaming down the face.
It can be caused by tissue laxity which occurs as we advance in years or it could be due to more mechanical restrictions, such as a previous eyelid surgery or facial nerve palsies. There are several surgical procedures available to treat this condition and restore normal appearance and function to the eyelids.
