Blepharitis is a widespread eye disease characterized by the presence of inflammation within the eyelids. Often the eyelids become red, crusty, irritated, and/or itchy. This localized inflammation can have many causes including allergies, other systemic conditions such as rosacea, or even the presence of common eyelash mites known as demodex!
Blepharitis is a chronic condition which often leads to significant meibomian gland dysfunction and an abnormal tear film further resulting in significant dry eye symptoms.
Thankfully, at EyeCare Associates, we offer the latest treatments to effectively address the root cause of blepharitis and help patients achieve relief!
