What Is Blepharitis?

This is a condition characterized by red, inflamed, and swollen eyelids. This condition can also cause crusty eyelashes, especially in the morning. Although not directly associated with vision problems, this condition can cause vision issues if left untreated. Swollen and inflamed eyelids will often cause you to rub or scratch your eyes. Over time this can cause damage to the cornea or the eye itself.

What Causes Blepharitis?

This condition can be caused by a few different things. Some of the most common causes are:

  • Bacterial eyelid infections
  • Gland dysfunction
  • Fungal eyelid infection
  • Parasites
  • Dry eyes

What Are The Symptoms?

The symptoms of this condition usually include red eyes, swollen eyelids, crusty eyelashes, and eyelids.

How Is This Condition Treated?

If you are experiencing any of the above-mentioned symptoms, you should schedule an appointment with our optometry office. You will be examined to determine the cause of your symptoms. If it is determined that you do have Blepharitis, there are a few treatment options available:

  • Medicated eye drops
  • Eyelid scrubs
  • In-office procedures

This condition is known to be reoccurring, so prevention is essential. Your eye doctor will be able to advise you on good eyelid hygiene techniques which may help you avoid flare-ups.
