“Eyelid laxity” is a phrase that describes several conditions that affect the eyelids, namely Ectropion, Entropion, trichiasis, and floppy eyelid syndrome. Ectropion and entropion are similar in that both conditions affect the lower eyelids, yet ectropion means that your lower eyelids droop outward and entropion describes the condition of your lower eyelids turning inward toward your eye. If your eyelashes are pointing toward your eye, you may have trichiasis, and if your eyelids spontaneously turn out while you sleep, you may have floppy eyelid syndrome. These conditions may lead to dryness, irritation, and even corneal damage if left untreated.

What Is the Recovery After Treatment?
After most procedures, recovery is relatively short. Most patients are able to manage the post-procedure discomfort with over-the-counter pain medications. You may need to limit your activities for a few days following surgery.
