  • Trichiasis case

    Posted on by Abii Dowdy

    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.
