Ectropion is where the lower eyelid droops away from the eye and transforms in an outward direction. Ectropion generally influences the lower eyelid and can occur in one or both eyes. Contact your GP or general practitioner out of hrs service immediately, or go to your local emergency division, if your eye is very red and excruciating or you have other symptoms, such as reduced vision or sensitivity to light. Most cases of ectropion are related to aging. Your optician, eye or general practitioner specialist can suggest you about ways to eliminate your symptoms and look after your eyes at home if it's only triggering minor issues. If ectropion is extreme and not dealt with, it's possible to develop a corneal ulcer that might affect your vision. Less common causes of ectropion consist of: a problem with the nerves that manage the eyelid, this is frequently seen in a type of face paralysis called Bell's palsy; a lump, cyst or tumour on the eyelid; damage to the skin around the eyelid as a result of an injury, a melt, a skin disease such as call dermatitis, or previous surgical treatment. It frequently affects the lower eyelid. A defect that takes place prior to birth; Facial palsy; Scar tissue from burns; Dry, uncomfortable eyes; Excess tearing of the eye; Eyelid turns outward; Long-term conjunctivitis; Keratitis; Redness of the cover and white part of the eye; If you have ectropion, you will more than likely have excess tearing. This takes place because the eye obtains dry, after that makes more splits. The excess rips can not get involved in the tear drainage duct. For that reason, they construct up inside the lower lid and after that spill over the edge of the lid onto the cheek.
