Entropion in a sheep

Entropion is a condition in which the eyelid margin curls inward, and causes irritation and abrasion of the cornea of the eye. It may occur as an inherited defect in dogs. It is also seen sporadically in flocks of sheep, where it is not certain whether it is an inherited structural defect or present congenitally as a result of eyelid spasm.
