Trachoma: Medical and Surgical Management
Trachoma is the most common cause of cicatricial entropion worldwide. Tarsal fracture and lid margin rotation is the principal surgical technique used for correction. The transconjunctival approach offers a simple, rapid, and highly effective approach without the need for a skin incision. It is used for both the upper and lower lids.
