Entropion is an uncomfortable or painful condition in which the eyelids roll inward, allowing the eyelashes (or other hair) to rub against the cornea and irritate it. The upper and/or lower eyelids can be involved, and the condition can occur in either one eye or both.
Entropion can also occur as a secondary condition as the result of scaring in an eyelid infection. The most common signs include an excessive amount of tears from the affected eye, rubbing, and sensitivity to light.
Predisposed breeds include Boxers, Bull Mastiffs, Cavalier King Charles, Chow Chow, Cocker Spaniel, English Bulldogs, Golden Retrievers, Great Danes, Irish Setters, Labrador Retriever, Poodles, Pugs, Chinese Shar-Pei, Saint Bernards, and others.
