Cicatricial entropion with trichiasis can be a challenging problem to manage. This condition is caused by scarring of the tarsus and the inward rotation or the defect of the lid margin. A variety of biological materials have been used to reconstruct the disfigured lid margin. Tarsal wedge resection and modified grey line splitting with acellular human dermal allograft insertion by 10/0 nylon sutures passing through the eyelid margin allow for correction of the cicatricial entropion while providing a reconstructed lid margin. This technique produces satisfying cosmetic and functional results when used to treat mild to moderate cicatricial entropion with lid margin distortion.
