Ectropion is a condition in which your eyelid turns outward. This can cause the inner eyelid to be exposed and prone to foreign particles and irritation. Ectropion primarily affects the lower eyelid, and in more severe cases, the entire eyelid becomes turned outwards.
Who Is a Candidate?
Candidates for this procedure will have ectropion on one or both eyelids. Dr. Vargason will conduct a physical examination of your eyes to determine if you are a candidate for surgery and review your medical history to ensure you are in a good condition for surgery.
Once this is complete, she will discuss your goals for the procedure, using this as a roadmap to guide her surgery.
