As we age, the muscles in our eyelids slowly weaken. In some cases, this can cause the eyelid to turn inwards, a condition known as entropion.
Entropion can be a very irritating and frustrating condition to deal with. When the eyelids turn inward, it pushes the skin of the eyelid and the eyelashes against the surface of the eye. The skin and eyelashes rubs against the eye and can be a source of discomfort and irritation. If left untreated, it can cause further damage, eye infections, and even vision loss.
