The Trichiasis is in a patient without Entropion the anatomical deformity of eyelashes, which rub on the eye surface.

The trichiasis is most often idiopathic, but can also be a blepharitis, post-traumatic and post-operative changes, conjunctival scarring (eg., By a cicatricial pemphigoid, atopic keratoconjunctivitis, Stevens-Johnson syndrome or chemical injury), a Epiblepharon (an additional Unterlidfalte leads to the vertical orientation of the eyelashes) and a distichiasis (congenital supernumerary row of eyelashes) are caused.

A corneal ulceration and scarring can occur in chronic cases. Symptoms include foreign body sensation, epiphora and red eye. The diagnosis is made clinically in general. The Trichiasis differs from a Entropion in that the Lidstellung is normal. To study includes a fluorescein staining, with a corneal erosion or ulceration can be excluded. Treatment involves removal of the eyelashes with tweezers. If the eyelashes grow, electrolysis or cryosurgery is more effective in preventing recurrences permanently.
