It is recommended that an entropion is repaired quickly to avoid permanent damage. To do so, Dr. McInnes makes a small incision in the corner of the eye, adjusts the eyelid to proper tension and restores muscle balance to roll the eyelid outward to a normal position. This may be done in the office or at a surgery center with IV sedation and local anesthetic and is considered an outpatient procedure, so patients are able to return to the comfort of their own home the same day. Most patients are able to return to relatively normal activities within about a week. Sutures are removed around the same time in the office and wearing makeup and contacts may be resumed. Most insurances may cover the cost of this procedure. Dr. McInnes will meet with you for an exam and address your individual situation and discuss the risks and benefits of having surgery to help make the right decision for you. Aesthetic Eye will also pre-authorize any procedures with your insurance company for you if surgery is the right choice for you.
