Blepharitis

What is Blepharitis?

Blepharitis is a common inflammation of the eyelids that is often neglected. Blepharitis may occur without symptoms. Usually, complaints include general irritation of the lid margins, burning, itching, intermittent blurred vision and a discharge in the eyes upon waking in the morning. Also, Blepharitis tends to make one prone to developing sties.

How is Blepharitis Treated?

In order to treat Blepharitis, the eyelashes must be kept clean by means of warm compresses and baby shampoo lid scrubs. With the baby shampoo, make suds on a washcloth, close your eyes, and scrub the outside of the eyes with the baby shampoo. Try not to get the soap in your eyes as you scrub the outside to help remove a bacteria and debris that may accumulate on the lid margins.

This treatment should be repeated two times daily for two weeks, and the reduced to once daily for continued control of this condition.

For more external cases, drops or ointment may be prescribed to control symptoms.
