• Lower lid entropion is owing to a defect of the lower eyelid retractors that causes attenuation of the aponeurosis. Twelve patients with lower lid entropion underwent surgery in which a procedure that reapproximates normal lower lid anatomy was used. There were two recurrences of the entropion condition in the twelve patients.
