Entropion is the turning in of an edge of an eyelid, causing the lashes to rub against the eye. It most often is seen on the lower eyelid. Entropion can be present at birth (congenital). In babies, it rarely causes problems because the lashes are very soft and do not easily damage the eye.In older people, the condition is most often caused by a spasm or weakening of the muscles surrounding the lower part of the eye. Entropion occurs most often in older adults, and it generally affects only our lower eyelid.
