76 year old with constant tearing and eye pain has the apperance of the lid shown in the picture. What is the best way to manage this patient? 

Diagnosis:  Entropion

Mostly seen in teh lower lids secondary to a combination of horizontal lid laxity, attenuation or disinsertion of the eye lid retractors, overriding of preseptal orbicularis and involutional enophthalmos

Treatment:  Horizontal eyelid tightening (tarsal strip) along with marginal rotation of through a full thickness horizontal eyelid incision (Wies procedure) to advance the retractors.
