What is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis is a common condition where the edges of the eyelids become red and swollen - this can develop at any age, and symptoms can include:
•itchy, sore and red eyelids that stick together
•crusty or greasy eyelashes
•a burning, gritty sensation in your eyes
•uncomfortable and increased sensitivity to light
•swollen eyelid margins
•Irregular, abnormal eyelash growth or loss of eyelashes in some severe cases
In most cases both eyes are affected, but one eye can be more affected than the other. The symptoms tend to be worse in the morning.
We run regular clinics using our Tear Lab and Blephex and Tear Lab euquipment to assess and mange conditions such as Blepharitis, Dry eye syndrome and other anterior eye conditions.
