Your eyesight is one of the most precious and important of all your senses and abilities. What price would you put on your eyesight? It is truly priceless. Ectropion is a condition in which your eyelid turns out. This is usually your lower eyelid. This leaves the surface of your inner eyelid prone and exposed to irritation. When this condition is mild, only one segment of your eyelid turns out, away from your eye. When ectropion is severe, the entire length of your eyelid is turned out. Ectropion is a condition that usually develops in older people. It is more common in men than in women. There are seven different types of ectropion. These are: Ectropion is often caused by the process of aging and the weakening of the connective tissue of your eyelid that causes it to turn out. Other possible causes of ectropion include: There are several signs and symptoms that may be an indication of ectropion. Some of these are: You or a loved one may have been diagnosed with ectropion. This disorder and/or complications that have resulted from or other underlying conditions along with it may be the cause of your disability. You may need assistance if this is true. You may need financial help. You or your loved one may be considering applying for the financial assistance that you need from the Social Security Administration by applying for Social Security disability benefits or disability benefits because of the disability caused by ectropion and/or complications that have resulted from or other underlying conditions along with it. Have you or your loved one already applied and been turned down by the Social Security Administration? If you or your loved one has decided to reapply or appeal the denial, remember this important fact. People who are represented by a disability attorney like the one you will find at are approved more often than people who do not have a disability lawyer standing with them.
