What is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis is a condition where the eye lid margins become inflamed; sometimes with redness, itching, and some swelling. Occasionally your eyes may feel as if there is foreign matter in them due to the flaking skin becoming embedded into your eyelashes.
If diagnosed with blepharitis, our physicians have a lid hygiene regimen for our patients to follow. If the inflammation is due to infection medication may be prescribed by your ophthalmologist.
