Proper Technique and Duration for Lower Lid Massage?
i developed cicatricial ectropion of right lower lid following repair of orbital fracture 4 months ago, the condition improved with massage (traction upwards from lashes or by holding the lid between 2 fingers and pulling up) but i still have scleral show that bothers me and i am also worried about causing lid laxity as i feel the lid is lax transversely and about losing the lashes should i continue the massage? for how long? can you describe in detail the proper technique?
Your done with finger massage.
The opposite lid demonstrates some intrinsic weakness as well
Two more months, read on for technique
