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
"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

"I love the work Dr. Ticho does. He is reassuring, kind, and very professional. His staff is always friendly and polite, and the office spaces are always clean. We had already been to the Illinois Eye Institute and tried the patches and the prisms. But his eye turn wasn't improving at all. So I decided to try Dr. Ticho. He examined my son's eyes and told us the patches and prisms would never work because the turn was too significant. At this visit for my son, Dr. Ticho noticed that I had strabismus as well and asked about it. I told him I had been told by multiple doctors that I was too old for anything to be done about it. They said my brain would not adapt to any correction, so I just dealt with it. He told me what they said wasn't true and that he could correct my eyes as well. My son and I had surgery on the same day, May 30th, 2019. Both surgeries were done with no issues. And the end result was neither of us had any hint of a turn anymore. For decades I dealt with not being able to focus properly, problems with my depth perception, and seeing the shocked faces of people watching both my eyes slowly drifting away from each other while I talked. I didn't want my son to deal with any of that and Dr. Ticho made sure he never would. My whole family sees him now. I have had several laser procedures done on my eyes with no mistakes. You can feel safe knowing that your eyes are in excellent hands."- S.B. / Google / Jul 29, 2022
