Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the question.
Inward rolling of lower eyelid is called entropion. It occurs in elderly due to weak eyelid muscles and is called senile entropion. Your doctor is right regarding surgery as definitive treatment. It is a simple surgery and will not cause anu problems later. It is better to undergo the surgery than leave it . If left alone it can lead to constant inward rolling of the lid causing more complications due to rubbing of eyelashes on the cornea.
