Trichiasis Surgery

Trachoma trichiasis is a condition in which one or more eyelashes from an in turned eyelid rub on a cornea. It follows scarring of the tarsal conjunctiva from repeated inflammation caused by trachoma. Trichiasis may eventually lead to corneal opacity and blindness if uncorrected. Blinding trachoma is a leading preventable cause of blindness in the world. Recent estimates showed that 40.6 million people are suffering from active trachoma and 8.2 million might have trichiasis.
