  • Trachoma

    Trachoma is an infection of the eyes that may result in blindness after repeated re-infections. It is the world's leading cause of preventable blindness and occurs where people live in overcrowded conditions with limited access to water and health care.Blindness from trachoma is due to recurrent episodes of active infection. The initial infection is confined to the conjunctival epithelium and triggers an immune response. Repeat infections with subsequent inflammatory responses results in tissue destruction, scarring, cicatricial entropion with trichiasis, and corneal opacification from lashes rubbing against the cornea.
