The diagnosis of ectropion is made by a normal eye examination.
During the examination, the doctor may carry out tests to determine whether the affected tissues are weakened or damaged and, based on this, suggest the best treatment for each situation.
The treatment of ectropion depends on its severity and the underlying cause.
In the case of mild ectropion, your doctor may prescribe eye drops or ointments to alleviate the discomfort caused by the condition and to help keep the eye lubricated.
However, the main and permanent treatment for ectropion is surgical.
