HOW DOES BLEPHARITIS IMPACT YOUR EYES
This short video explains what blepharitis is and how it can impact your eye health.
Warm compresses work by warming the material that blocks the glands and loosening the crusts on the eyelid. This makes them easier to remove. You can use a flannel, cotton-wool ball or something similar as a warm compress.
You can buy special lid wipes or solution. We can advise you on this. Or you can fill an egg cup with boiling water and leave it to cool, then add 1 part baby shampoo to 10 parts water, or a quarter table spoon of bicarbonate of soda.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Use a lid cleaning wipe or a cotton-wool bud dampened in the solution you have made (squeeze it out first) to gently clean the edges of your eyelids near your lashes. Wipe from the inside (near your nose) to the outside corner of your eye.
If these treatments do not work, your doctor or prescribing optometrist may prescribe you antibiotic ointment or tablets.
