Hello Doctor,

1 Answer:

Hello Merlyn, Thank you for the question.

Eyelashes that grow toward the eyeball are known as trischiasis in medical language. Trichiasis can be caused by an infection, injury to the eye, inflammation of the eyelids, or an autoimmune condition. This abnormal growth of eyelashes can cause irritation to the eye and if this condition lasts for a long time it can cause injury to the cornea of ​​the eye (corneal abrasion or corneal ulcer) which in turn can interfere with vision. It is better if you take your baby to consult an ophthalmologist. The doctor will need to do further examinations of your baby's eyes. The next treatment will be determined by the doctor after examining your baby's eye condition. Treatment can include removing the lashes and hair follicles, or other measures to stop the growth of the lashes and kill the hair follicles.

Hope this information is helpful.

Dr. Aloisia
