Entropion is a condition in which part or all of the eyelid rolls inward toward the eye surface. The eyelashes may then brush against the cornea (the clear covering of the eye), causing scratches, ulcers, and pain. The condition is often inherited in flat-faced dogs or in dogs with many facial folds.
