  • Trichiasis case

    Posted on by Abii Dowdy image9

    Recently on our social media pages we asked you what you thought was wrong with the above eye! Here is the full explanation:

    This horse presented with a recurrent painful eye with superficial ulceration and keratitis (inflammation of the cornea).

    Basic treatment with topical eye drops had failed to resolve the condition.

    On closer inspection under sedation a small eye lash growing in the wrong place was identified.

    This is known as Trichiasis.

    This was removed with forceps and the horse made a rapid recovery.
