Eyelashes turning inward
I'm 84 years old and I had cataract surgery about 4 years ago. Ever since my surgery my left eye has been bothering me.  My lower lashes seem to be turning inward towards my eye.  Is there a common cause of this and can anything be done?

The condition is called "entropion" it needs surgery which can be done under local and as an outpatient. It should be fixed before the cornea is scarred or gets infected. See an Eye MD ophthalmologist. If you have an oculoplastic ophthalmologist near you so much the better. Find one at www.aao.org
