Ectropion is the outward turning of the upper or lower eyelid so the lid margin does not rest against the eyeball, but falls or is pulled away. This condition can create corneal exposure with excessive drying, tearing, and irritation. Surgery may restore the normal position of the eyelid. Dr. Donelson is trained to properly diagnose and treat this condition.
