What is an Eyelid Invert
And Evert Procedure?
Entropion and/or ectropion repair is usually performed at an outpatient surgery center for individuals who have an eyelid turning in or out in Rochester, New York. An anesthesiologist is present to send medicine through an IV to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. The surgery itself typically tightens the eyelid and re-attaches muscles that have stretched or slipped away from the tissues in the eyelid.
Benefits of An Eyelid Invert & Evert
Restore Eyelid Position
By restoring your eyelid to its natural position, the eyelid is able to protect the eye properly, evenly distribute tears across the eye, and keep your eye moisturized.

No More Tearing
One of the most common symptoms of people with entropion or ectropion is constant tearing from their eye. This is because the eyelid is either turned in and the eyelid is rubbing against the eye or the eyelid is turned outward, allowing tearing to spill from the eye. Once the eyelid is fixed, the tearing is greatly diminished with an eyelid invert or evert procedure in Rochester.
