Ectropion (Eye lid turns outwards)

Ectropion occurs when the eye lid turns outwards.

Ectropion mainly affects the lower eye lid and can occur in one or both eyes. Ectroption is different to entroption, which is where the eye lid turns inwards, towards the eye.

If you are concerned about your eye lids turning outwards (Ectropion), your eye lids turning inwards (Entropion) or eye lid cysts (Chalazions) you can ask book to see one of our Consultants privately without any long delays and at a time to suit you.

Our consultants offer a wide range of Entropion treatments including:

All our Consultant Ophthalmologists are registered on the GMC Specialist Register and the Royal College of Ophthalmologists.

During the consultation the Consultant will examine the cornea (front of the eye) as it may become damaged if ectropion is left untreated.

Particular attention is taken during the examination to confirm if a corneal ulcer has developed.
