This female shar-pei suffered from entropion – turning in of the eyelids so that the skin and hair is actually touching the cornea. It is a painful condition and if not corrected can eventually lead to blindness by chronically irritating the cornea. The entropion was corrected surgically by removal of enough skin below the lids to turn the eyelids outward. This is a photo immediately post-op. Surgery was performed by Dr. Cathy Hooper using a laser.
This is several months post-op – all the swelling is gone and this little girl can now see well and without pain. Her eyes look perfectly normal.
