Lid margin condition that leads to significant discomfort
BLEPHARITIS is a common condition that can develop at any age. Oils and other products, normally secreted by the eye and eyelids, build up on the lid surface and eyelashes resulting in symptoms of eye irritation and lid inflammation. The main treatment is careful cleaning of the eyelids and lashes to remove the irritating substances. In fact, lid cleaning is so effective in blepharitis, that often no further treatment is necessary. Please see the video for more detail.
