Ectropion, the turning out of the lower eyelid, away from the eye. The most common type is senile ectropion (seen here), in which the droop of the lower eyelid is due to loss of tissue elasticity in old age. The condition may also occur if the conjunctiva (the membrane lining the eyelid) becomes thickened or if scarring causes contraction of the skin.
