Ectropion Treated Successfully at AEHI, Navi Mumbai

Case of Mr Keshav 45 yrs old male had been facing with complaint of difficulty in eyes, as his eyes were red, swollen, irritating and excessive tearing since last 7 months.  He was getting disturbed from his complaints and decided to have an eye specialist consultation.


He visited Advanced Eye Hospital and Institute (AEHI) located at Palm Beach road, Navi Mumbai. He got his routine eye evaluation done than had his consultation with Dr. Akshay Nair, Ophthalmic Plastic Surgeon and Ocular Oncologist. Dr. Akshay Nair examined his eyes and diagnosed the condition as Ectropion. He carried slit lamp examination. It is an examination to check the status of cornea and evidence of dryness of eyes.


What is Ectropion?
Ectropion is an eye condition in which the lower eye lids turned outwards away from the eye ball. It can cause dryness of eyes, excessive tearing, and irritation of eyes. It is usually seen in older people due to the weakness of muscle.

Dr. Akshay Nair advised some lubricating drops to provide relief and protect cornea from further damage and advised eye operation for the correction of Ectropion. If not treated scarring or infection of cornea can occur. Hence operation date was scheduled.

On the day of operation Dr. Akshay Nair operated on his eyes, a local anaesthesia was given.  The surgery includes tightening the muscles of the eye lid and restore the lid back to its normal position. Dr. Akshay Nair worked in his eye for about 45-50 minutes.

Mr Keshav was asked to sit in the recovery room for some time. Once he went home he had some swelling in his eye which was expected and explained to him. Few antibiotic ointments were prescribed to him for quick healing and avoid any infection. He was called for his follow up in a week.

After a week Mr Keshav came for his follow up visit in which his complaints were improved. Dr. Akshay Nair checked his eyes and assured him that he is recovering.

Mr Keshav was very thankful to Dr. Akshay Nair for his friendly yet professional nature. He was happy to get operated in the best eye hospital in Navi Mumbai.
