This is a common issue where the eyelashes are misdirected and turn inward towards the eye, causing irritation of the cornea and conjunctiva. The treatment usually involves removing the eyelash, follicle or both, redirecting the lash growth but at times surgery is needed to reposition the eyelashes to correct the anatomical cause of the problem.
