This 13-year old DSH cat presented with sore eyes due to bilateral entropion, trichiasis and secondary ulceration and sequestrum formation in both eyes

Entropion in a cat

Note the pigment in the cornea and the entropion causing chronic epiphora (wetting) on both upper and lower eyelids.

Both eyes had a superficial keratectomy done to remove the sequestrum and a corneoconjunctival transposition graft sutured into the deficit using 9/0 PGA sutures as well as entropion surgery to correct the underlying cause.

The left eye a month after surgery. The sutures have not resorbed fully yet, but the graft is fully settled, clearing and both eyes were comfortable.
