Ophthalmic Surg. Sep-Oct 1994;25(9):604-6.

Abstract

A simply designed entropion patch provided effective temporary preoperative relief of the symptoms of lid malposition in lower lid involutional entropion in six patients. The patch is easily fashioned and used after appropriate instruction, with its design taking into account lid mechanics and the pathophysiology of involutional entropion.
