Upper eyelid cicatricial entropion is commonly encountered as a sequela of inflammatory conditions. The surgical correction of this defect is often difficult and frequently unsuccessful. We have used the Barbera-Carre technique with good results in 20 patients with cicatricial entropion due to trachoma. We take this opportunity to present the surgical technique and our results.
