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.
