Answer

Slit-lamp examination shows additional features, including loss of lashes (madarosis), whitening of the lashes (poliosis), lid scarring and misdirection of lashes (trichiasis), crusting of the lashes and meibomian orifices, eyelid margin ulceration, plugging and "pouting" of the meibomian orifices, telangiectasias of the lid margin, and lid irregularity (tylosis).
