Blepharitis Causes and Treatment
Have you ever experienced waking up with crusty, sticky eyelashes or eyelids that feel itchy, swollen, and sore? If so, you could be suffering from a common eye condition known as Blepharitis.
Blepharitis happens when your eyelids and eyelash follicles get inflamed and/or infected. While it’s non-contagious, it does affect patients of all ages and almost everyone will experience it at some point throughout their lifetime.
Most often, it is caused by continuous buildup of debris and bacteria. Other causes may also include allergies, dandruff, rosacea, acne, bacterial infections, and poor eye hygiene.
Your eye care provider will be able to diagnose Blepharitis during a comprehensive eye exam. Although there is no cure for the condition, effective management and proper hygiene can alleviate symptoms and prevent serious problems that could negatively impact your vision.
If you are suffering from chronic dry eyes, please do not hesitate to give us a call. We have three convenient locations and look forward to helping your eyes feel their best.
