Visit Our Cataract Center

Cataract patients now have the option to have their vision corrected to allow them to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! These lens implants provide significantly reduced dependence on glasses for all tasks of daily living, providing a range of focus that laser vision correction cannot achieve. Individuals with visual impairment suffering from cataracts previously had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery.

Entropion


Entropion is an eyelid dysfunction that occurs when the lower eyelid and eyelashes turn inward towards the eye causing the eyelid and lashes to rub against the cornea and conjunctiva.

Causes if Entropion:

  • Relaxation of eyelid tissues due to aging changes
  • Infection
  • Scarring on the inner surface of the eyelid
  • Eyelid injuries
  • Tumors
  • Can be congenital if the eyelid does not form properly

Symptoms of Entropion:

  • Excessive tearing
  • Crusting of the eyelid
  • Mucus discharge
  • Corneal irritation
  • Sagging skin around the eye
  • Impaired vision
  • Redness and pain of the eye
  • Sensitivity to light and wind
  • Foreign body sensation.

Treatment:

Several surgical procedures may be used to tighten the eyelid and eyelid attachments thus restoring some of its elasticity and repositioning it normally. Alternatively, tape or sutures can be used to reposition the eyelid and protect the eye temporarily. Lubricating drops and ointments are also helpful. Medications may also be used to control eyelid inflammation or irritation and to treat scars.
