Blepharitis

 In Retina

What is blepharitis?

Blepharitis is a common inflammatory eye disorder, which affects your eyelid margins and leaves debris on your eyelashes. If left untreated, the debris (germs living on the eyelids) can build up and look like dandruff, crusting at the roots of the lashes, which can cause red sore eyes.

Why do I have blepharitis?

It just happens; it is not anything you have or have not done.

Will it cause problems?

Blepharitis is usually harmless, but can cause problems if left untreated. Some people have unpleasant irritation causing red eyes, and a “gritty” feeling due to the eyes being dry (lack of natural tears), more noticeable when using computers or reading. But occasionally the eyes are watery
