Ectropion
Patients with ectropion have a sagging lower eyelids that leaves the eye exposed and dry.

If we suspect an ocular condition or disease,
we will immediately schedule or perform
diagnostic tests to determined our next steps.

It is caused by a lack of tone of the delicate muscles that hold the lid taut against the eye. Excessive tearing is a common with ectropion, but wiping the tears away only causes the lid to sag more. Ectropion is most common among people over 60.

What causes ocular lymphoma?
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
• Irritation
• Burning
• Gritty, sandy feeling
• Red, irritated eyelid

DETECTION AND DIAGNOSIS
During the exam, the doctor will determine the extent of the blockage. Cultures may be taken of the discharge to identify the type of infection. The doctor will also determine whether the infection has affected the eye.

TREATMENT
The irritation can be temporarily relieved with artificial tears and ointments to lubricate the eye; however, surgery to tighten the lid is usually necessary to correct this problem.
