Entropion Surgery

Postby rain29 » Tue Feb 22, 2011 12:49 pm

Hi,

My son will be going for Entropion Surgery on both eyes during March School Holiday. Its an eyelid problem where the eyelid margin rolls inward towards the eye. As a result, the eyelashes constantly rub against the cornea. Currently, his vision is perfect but there are scratches in his cornea and it will affect his vision if do not correct this problem.

The doctor told us there will still be 20% chances that the problem will re-occur after the surgery but chances are very slim. I am very worry as there will be a scar after the surgery although the doctor had assured us that it will fade off.

I would like to hear from anyone who had gone thru this and share their experience with us.

Thanks

Hi Rain29,

I had chanced upon a blogger's entry on her son's diagnosis while I was searching for a good eye doc. Managed to dig up the link, http://angeliatay.livejournal.com/351091.html
