Eyelid Turning Out
Ectropion is a serious condition demanding proper treatment. Left untreated, ectropion can result in permanent eye damage due to infection and corneal scarring, and may even lead to loss of the eye. Treatment involves the use of artificial tears and ointments to lubricate the eye, followed by corrective surgery. The results of surgery are usually permanent and recurrence is rare.
As our patient you or your loved one will receive evaluation and treatment by one of our elite oculoplastic surgeons, each with advanced specialized credentials, to give you the uncompromising care and extraordinary results we are known for. Most procedures may be performed at TOC’s outpatient surgical center, the Center for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Eyelid and Oculoplastic Surgery (CAREOS).
Outpatient (ambulatory) surgery helps to reduce hospital costs, personal expense, and length of stay for patients needing surgery. CAREOS is one of the only ambulatory surgical centers in Central Texas dedicated solely to oculoplastic and laser aesthetic surgery. This means we are highly efficient in providing the specific care you need. For those times when surgery is best performed at a hospital, TOC physicians have surgical privileges at all Austin-area hospitals.
We understand that any patient may feel anxious or apprehensive about treatment. Our goal is to help you or your loved one feel at ease. We engage each patient with sensitivity and respect for his or her individual needs.
