Where would you like: to start These are 3 huge topics to cover in 5 sentences! How is your mom's eye's doing? Depends on her degree of glaucoma, if she has cataracts, or have had them removed, and what meds/procedures she's had done, and the entropion is separately treated by oculoplastics from her glaucoma and cataract management. Hope her pressures are good! Also, ask her eye doctor is best!
