Introduction: Entropion is a condition in which eyelid margin turns inward. Four types of entropion including spastic, cicatricial, congenital, and involutional. Involutional entropion prevalence has been reported to be 2.1% and increases with advancing age.

Case: A 79-year-old female complained of foreign body sensation with tearing in the right eye for the last one year. She had a history of cataract surgery on both eyes. Ophthalmology examination revealed right lower lid entropion and bilateral pseudophakia. Surgical correction was done to tighten the orbicularis oculi muscle, along with appropriate postoperative treatment adjuncts such as analgesics and antibiotics. Surgical approach was chosen in favor of its lower recurrence rate.

Conclusion: After surgical procedure and four days followup, the patient was released with good prognosis prediction.
