Trichiasis refers to the rare postinfectious or post-traumatic inward turningof the eyelashes. The deformity causes the eyelashes to run against the con-junctiva and cornea, causing a permanent foreign-body sensation, increased tear secretion, and chronic conjunctivitis. The eyelash follicles can be oblit-erated by electrolysis. The disorder may also be successfully treated by cryo-cautery epilation or surgical removal of the follicle bed.
