Abstract
A study was conducted to find out the incidence of entropion in different breeds of Sheepand to correct the entropion by a simple technique. The incidence of entropion was foundhighest in Corriedale (7.28%), followed by Polled dorset x Corriedale (1.08%) and Polled dorset(0.63%). No entropic lambs were found in South down breed. The lower eyelid involvement wasmore common than upper eyelid involvement. A fold of skin on the affected lid was removedusing a crush and cut approach. No anaesthesia and suture was applied during the operation.The bloodless surgery corrected the defect without an open wound and healing occurred within 5-6 days and the affected eyelid was functioning normally
