    Accessory lacrimal glands
  19. What is trichiasis?
    Abnormal misdirected growth of lashes
  20. What is the cause of trichiasis?
    Trichiasis is commonly acquired
  21. Trichiasis is often secondary to? (4)
    • chronic bleph
    • tarsal plate or conj scarring (e.g. trachoma, Stevens-Johnson syndrome
    • ageing changes (entropion)
    • trauma
  22. How is pain from trichiasis relieved?
    Pull the lid away from the eye
  23. Signs and symptoms of trichiasis (8)
    • check history
    • posterior misdirection of normal lashes
    • most frequently lower lid
    • corneal epithelial defects
    • red eye
    • discomfort
    • tearing
    • FB sensation
  24. Complications associated with trichiasis? (3)
    • corneal irritation
    • abrasions
    • worse with blinking
  25. Worst case scenario associated with trichiasis? (3)
    • infection
    • ulceration
    • pannus (if long term)
  26. Management of trichiasis? (3)
    • treat underlying cause
    • treat infection
    • remove aberrant eyelashes
  27. How can aberrant eyelashes be removed? (5)
    • expilation
    • electrolysis
    • cryotherapy
    • laser¬†
    • surgery
  28. What is trachoma?
    A bacterial infection
  29. Epidemiology of trachoma (5)
    • ~84mil ppl in 51 endemic countries have active trachoma
    • WHO estimates ~6mil cases of blindness due to trachoma occur yearly
    • 3% of global blindness
    • 7 previously endemic countries (Gambia, Ghana, Iran, Morocco, Myanmar, Oman and Vietnam)
    • elimination of blinding trachoma as a public health problem
  30. Cause of trachoma (2)
    • Infectious agent: Chlamydia trachomatis
    • a gram negative bacteria
  31. Serotypes of C. Trachomatis
    • Serotypes A, B, Ba, C: classic trachoma (poor hygeine)
    • Serotypes D to K: adult inclusion conjunctivitis (sexually transmitted), neonatal conjunctivitis (Chlamydia most common infectious cause)
    • Serotypes L1 to L3: lymphogranuloma venerem (a STD)
  32. What are the two phases of trachoma
    • active
    • scarring/cicatrical
  33. Signs during active phase of trachoma (5)
    • usually seen in children
    • conj inflammation (follicles and papillae)
    • limbal follicles
    • irritating and watery discharge
    • keratitis
  34. Signs during cicatrical phase of trachoma (4)
    • tarsal conj scarring(esp upper) - linear/stellate then confluent
    • distortion of eyelid and trichiasis
    • secondary trichiasis/entropion and associated corneal scarring leading to blindness
    • resolved limbal follicles result in gaps in corneal pannus (Herbit's Pits)
  35. Trachoma Grading Scale
    • TF: Trachamatous inflammation - follicular
    • TI: Trachomatous inflammation - intense
    • TS: Trachomatous scarring
    • TT: Trachomatous trachiasis
    • CO: Corneal opacity
  36. What is distichiasis? (3)
    • rare
    • extra row of lashes arising from meibomian gland orifices
    • associated with trichiasis
  37. Causes of congenital distihiasis
    • differentiation of complete pilosebaceous glands (hair follicles) cf normal sebaceous (meibomian glands)
    • meibomian glands may be abnormal
  38. Cause of acquired distichiasis (metaplastic lashes)
    • transformation from normal meibomian glands to hair follicles (pilosebaceous units)
    • related to conjunctival scarring
    • e.g. chemical burns, ocular pemphigoid, Stevens-Johnsons Syndrome
  39. Treatment for distichiasis (3)
    • surgical excision
    • cryotherapy
    • laser
  40. Lid-splitting procedure
    • division into anterior and posterior lamellae
    • cryotherapy to posterior lamella
    • reapposition of lamellae
  41. What is madarosis
    Loss of eyelashes/eyebrows partial or complete
  42. Cause of madarosis (6)
    • local disease
    • systemic disorders
    • infectious
    • skin-related
    • eyelash removal
    • trauma
