This article reviews the etiology and classification of ectropion and entropion, two of the more common eyelid conditions seen by the ophthalmologist. The preoperative evaluation is important in determining the etiology of the lid malposition. Surgical correction should be directed to the anatomic changes present. A detailed discussion of the more useful surgical procedures to correct ectropion and entropion is presented.
