Entropion is a medical condition where the edge of the eyelid turns inwards towards the eyeball and the eyelashes will rub against the eyeball which causes eye pain and tearing. Entropion repair surgery rotates the eyelid and eyelashes away from the eyeball so the eyelashes point forward again. When the eyelid and eyelashes are not rubbing against the eyeball, this improves the eye pain and tearing. I have written about the surgical technique in the medical journal, Ophthalmology.
