This may cause the eyelid to turn inwards, called entropion, or the lid may turn outwards which is called ectropion.

+ Entropion

Once and entropion has developed, the eyelashes then can come in contact with the corneal surface. This can make the eye feel very uncomfortable causing excessive watering, a red eye or even permanent corneal scarring and reduction in vision. An ophthalmologist will carefully review your eyelids and examine the corneal surface. Treatment involves surgical repair under local anaesthesia by a specialist. After surgery, symptoms resolve very quickly. 

+ Ectropion

Eyelid ectropion can be very obvious, with the lower lid becoming very red and inflamed. This also leads to exposure of the corneal surface and can cause a red eye, recurrent watering and ocular infections. Ectropion can also cause a failure of tears to drain properly to the lacrimal punctum thus leading to excessive watering. A careful examination of the eyelids, eye and lacrimal system is required and a surgical plan for repair can be made. The procedure is performed under light anaesthesia.

What to expect

Free Consultation with one of our Patient Advisors

We offer a free, no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our Patient Advisors. They will work with you to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve, talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have. If you decide that you would like to proceed to the next step and see a surgeon, your Patient Advisor will be happy to arrange this for you. At this point, you will be required to pay a consultation fee. 

Surgical Consultation

The next step is for you to meet your chosen surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic. Your surgeon will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you, your condition, and your expectations before making a recommendation and personalised treatment plan for you. You will then discuss the outcomes you can expect to see and ask any questions.

The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Cadogan Clinic by your Patient Advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anaesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.  

Recovery

After the procedure, you will recover in the capable hands of our aftercare team. As we are a day-case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours. If your surgeon is happy with your results, you will be able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure in order to be close to their surgeon. Talk to us about these options if this is for you. 

After Care & Support

Our care and support continues in the days and weeks following your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. This comprised of a series of appointments made with your surgeon and nursing team to monitor your progress and recovery. They will also introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke products to aid your progress. Our team are also on call to answer any questions you have around your surgery at any time you are concerned.
