Entropion, or an In-turned Eyelid, is a condition when the eyelid rolls inward toward the eye. This causes the eyelashes of the eyelid to rub on the surface of the eye. Common symptoms of entropion include eye irritation, pain, redness, tearing, and mucous build up. The most common cause of entropion is aging, but some injuries and medical conditions can cause entropion as well. Entropion is commonly treated with an in office procedure or eyelid surgery to correct the position of the eyelid.
