Abstract

PURPOSE:

To present a modified transconjunctival approach for involutional entropion repair.

METHODS:

This study is a retrospective consecutive single surgeon case series using a transconjunctival approach for involutional lower lid entropion (ILLE) repair.

RESULTS:

Eleven eyes were operated for involution entropion with 9 cases of complete resolution. Two patients required further Jones' retractor plication.

CONCLUSION:

Transconjunctival involutional lower lid entropion repair is a time-efficient, safe, and efficacious technique. The scar free technique described leads to full restoration of lower lid anatomy. In contrast to other reports we found a relatively low rate of recurrence on follow-up.
