General information on Trichiasis

Trichiasis is when eyelashes grow from the eyelid and rub against the cornea causing eye irritation and sometimes injury. Typically, cats do not have eyelashes, but occasionally they do and they can have this problem.

Symptoms of Trichiasis

Some of the symptoms for trichiasis may be squinting, blinking, tearing, discharge from the eyes, redness of the eye, or dark coloring of the eye.

Treatments for Trichiasis

The treatment for trichiasis is to surgically remove the eyelashes from the roots that are irritating the eyes. In some cases, the veterinarian will freeze the eyelashes off. Plucking the eyelashes out will provide temporary relief, but when the eyelashes grow back, the problem will recur.
