Seeing a Way Around Fear of Eyelid Surgery

In an effort to save the sight of every trichiasis sufferer, The Carter Center and partners are breaking down barriers and finding ways to reduce the fear that may keep patients from choosing to undergo eye surgery that can stop the pain and, ultimately, restore their vision.


The Center supports about 40 percent of these surgeries globally, training and equipping local health workers to surgically correct eyelids deformed by the scarring of multiple trachoma infections.
