what is ectropion and entropion repair?
Ticho Eye Associates is proud to be serving Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, and Munster, IN with premier eye care. We offer an expansive list of services, including ectropion and entropion repair. Ectropion and entropion are common disorders that affect the normal position of the eyelid. Ectropion causes the eyelid to fold outward while entropion pulls the eyelid inward. It's prominently seen in older patients over the age of 60. Although these disorders aren't serious, they can cause a lot of irritation and lead to more concerning eye issues if left untreated. If you have noticed changes in the position of your eyelid(s), contact our office today to learn about your treatment options.
Who is a candidate for ectropion and entropion repair?
Numerous treatments are available for ectropion and entropion conditions; however, if you are not a candidate for these procedures, you may need a more thorough repair. At Ticho Eye Associates, our skilled eye care professionals will determine if you are eligible for this treatment during a comprehensive consultation. We will then curate a personalized treatment plan specifically for you and your needs.
Ectropion and Entropion Repair Reviews
"I had cataract procedures for both eyes then eyelid surgery after that. Those that I dealt with in the front office are polite even when it is very busy. I value the one on one service that Dr. Ticho’s technicians gave me when preparing me to see the doctor and taking me from test to test. The equipment, to me, is just amazing and is up to date. Dr. Ticho explained very clearly my treatment plan and I went into both procedures very confident that my eyes were in good care."- M.G. / Yelp / Dec 18, 2020
"From the very beginning it looked like a professional, quality operation. I spoke with many people at Ticho and each person knew their job well. My eyes were tested thoroughly and they determined I needed cataract surgery. I had been told that elsewhere also, so I was prepared for surgery. When I went in for cataract surgery everything was in place and ready to go. The people that work in Tinley Woods Surgical Center are very friendly, compassionate and put you at ease. They asked me several times “why are you here today”? Of course, they knew why I was there. They were making sure I knew why I was there. The surgery went well, very minor pain. I could see a difference right away. Everything looked brighter and my focus was much better. I will be having cataract surgery on my right eye within a few weeks. I am certain the professionalism, quality and care will be there. Thank you Ticho Eye Associates. "- G.P. / Healthgrades / Jan 28, 2021
"First I want to thank god for allowing my surgery and recovery to go smoothly, and without any complications. And secondly a huge thank you to Dr. Ticho, a month ago I was pretty much blind in both my eyes due to cataracts. Dr. Ticho answered all of my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my entire experience. I went in confident that he was more than capable of performing my surgery due to his constant reassurance and extensive explanation of what to expect. I am forever grateful to him and his stuff, whom were also very kind. They reached out to me both times after my surgery to see how I was doing and I am thankful. I would highly recommend Dr. Ticho if you’re looking for a physician to help with your optical needs."- T.F. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2021
