The 411 on Ectropion

ectropion treatment

As you age, your skin starts to lose elasticity and can even begin to sag in places that you didn’t know it could— including both your upper and lower eyelid. Usually affecting the lower part of the eyelid, ectropion is when there is a sagging and outward turning of the eyelid which can make everyday things like seeing or even applying makeup to the lower part of the eye to become a bit more difficult. If you suffer from ectropion, Dr. Daniel Tresley can help you to get your vision back and literally see the best results possible. Read on to learn more.

How Is It Caused?
As mentioned above, ectropion is a condition that is primarily caused by old age and the loss of elasticity in the skin and eye muscles. However, there are other contributing factors such as:

  • previous trauma
  • previous surgery
  • burns
  • skin cancers
  • nerve palsies

What are the symptoms?
Ectropion isn’t just a condition that can make your appearance look a little less than attractive, but it is also a condition that can cause things like watery eyes, irritation, redness, inflammation, and the caking and crusting around the eyelids.

What are the treatments?
There are two different types of treatment options that Dr. Tresley may recommend. The first is eyedrops and the second is a surgical procedure. Dr. Daniel Tresley specializes in this type of surgery and can help to restore your vision and overall appearance back to normal in no time. During the surgical procedure, Dr. Daniel Tresley will tighten the eyelid muscles in order to restore the eyelid to its normal position. Ectropion surgery involves tightening the muscles of the eyelid and its attachment to restore the eyelid to its more normal position.

If you are suffering from ectropion, Dr. Daniel Tresley can help restore your eye and appearance in no time. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today and one of our specialists will help you out.
