Ectropion is a condition in which the eyelid turns outward. It typically affects the lower eyelid(s). It most commonly occurs from stretching and laxity of an eyelid with age, or can result from a stroke or paralysis (such as Bell’s Palsy), or from an injury or surgery. Affected eyes are typically red with symptoms of mattering, irritation, and tearing. It can be repaired with surgery to reposition the eyelid.
