What is entropion?
Entropion is an eye disease characterised by the rotation of the eyelid towards the inside of the eye. This is the opposite of ectropion, a condition in which the eyelid turns away from the eye surface.
A bad position of the eyelids causes them not fit correctly when blinking and lubrication problems arise, as tears spread properly over the eye. Furthermore, in the specific case of entropion, the rubbing of the eyelashes against the cornea due to the rotation of the eyelid must be added.
If not treated in time, this disorder can cause severe corneal injuries.
