In brief: Eye infection

Trachoma is caused by infection with the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis.
It frequently affects children, although the effects of scarring may not be seen until later in life. Trachoma is spread through direct contact with infected eye, nose, or throat secretions or by contact with contaminated objects, such as towels, etc.
