A simplified method of evaluating both the intensity of active inflammatory disease and the visually disabling lesions of trachoma is presented. Evaluation of the active disease is based on the scoring of clinical signs, lymphoid follicles, and papillary hypertrophy. The irreversible lesions of trachoma are classified as conjunctival scarring, trichiasis and/or entropion, and corneal scarring.
