Ectropion is when the eyelid turns outward, exposing the inner portion of the eyelid as well as the eye to the air. This, often, exacerbates dry eye symptoms, including blurry vision, tired eyes, burning eyes, red eyes, red eyelids and sometimes tearing. Ectropion can be repaired by a number of procedures, depending on its cause, which ranges from laxity of the eyelid from aging to scarring.
