In contrast to ectropion, entropion is defined as an inward turning of the eyelid. The eyelashes are in contact with the surface of the eye, which can cause discomfort and irritation. This abnormality of the eye usually affects older people and the lower eyelid. When untreated, entropion can cause corneal damage. Artificial tears and ointments can be used to temporarily relieve symptoms.
You should know that Bellevue clinics have all the latest technologies available to diagnose and monitor cases of entropion.
