Ectropian, common in the elderly community, is a condition that causes the inner eyelid surface to become dry and irritated due to a “turning out” of the eyelid. Symptoms can include: irritation, excessive tearing, and excessive dryness. Sometimes the Ectropian symptoms can be managed with artificial tears, but only until surgery can be scheduled. If your eyelids are drooping, and your eyes are constantly irritated or watery, make an appointment to see one of our doctors for an evaluation.
