Dr. Akshay Nair examined his eyes and diagnosed the condition as Ectropion. He carried slit lamp examination in his eye.

Slit Lamp examination: It is an examination to check the status of cornea and evidence of dryness of eyes.

What is Ectropion?

Ectropion is an eye condition in which the lower eyelids turned outwards away from the eyeball. It can cause dryness of eyes, excessive tearing, and irritation of eyes. It is usually seen in older people due to the weakness of muscle.

Dr. Akshay Nair advised some lubricating drops to provide relief and protect the cornea from further damage and advised eye operation for the correction of Ectropion. If not treated scarring or infection of the cornea can occur. Hence operation date was scheduled.

On the day of operation, Chandrakant was taken in the OT, Dr. Akshay Nair operated on his eyes, a local anaesthesia was given.  The operation includes tightening the muscles of the eyelid and restore the lid back to its normal position. Dr. Akshay Nair worked in his eye for about 45-50 minutes.

After the operation, Chandrakant was asked to sit in the recovery room for some time. Dr. Akshay explained to him that he might have some swelling in his eye. Few antibiotic ointments were prescribed to him for quick healing and avoid any infection. He was called for his follow up in a week.

After a week Mr Chandrakant came for his follow-up visit in which his complaints were improved. Dr. Akshay Nair examined his eyes and said him that his eye is recovering.

Mr Chandrakant was very happy to get rid of his eye problems and very thankful to Dr. Akshay Nair for his friendly yet professional nature.
