What is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis is a common condition that enables the eyelid to become inflamed, red and swollen. It can be developed at any age; however it is more common for the ages of 40 and over. This condition can be caused by an infection named Staphylococcus bacteria, or even a skin condition such as: seborrhoeic dermatitis, where the skin becomes oily or flaky.
If a person has chronic Blepharitis then unfortunately it stays with them for the rest of their life. However its not a permanent state, as it tends to come and go as it wishes.
The main symptoms are:
- Irritation/ inflammation of the eye lids, both eye lids are usually affected at the same time.
- Sand & gritty eye lids, tiny flakes may appear which will look like small flakes or dandruff.
- One or more of the tiny glands of the eyelids may block and fill with an oily fluid.
- The eyes may become sticky with discharge and the eyelids may stick together in the morning.
