Lashes turn in
« Reply #1 on: July 15, 2011, 09:55:46 AM »

Q: I have a patient whose eyes were burned by chemicals causing eyelashes to grow inward into his eyes and causing extreme pain.  He has had them frozen, cauterized, and surgically altered and thus far, they grow back causing him this same pain.  Do you know of anyone who can permanently remove eyelashes so they do not grow back and where can this specialist be found?
A: This is a serious potential problem. The specialists most acquainted with treating this are ophthalmologists specializing in oculo-plastic surgery. Perhaps your local medical society can help with this referral.
