Blepharitis can be treated with regular eyelid hygiene, warmth, massage and cleansing. Other treatments for more severe cases include the use of artificial teardrops. Blepharitis blocks the production of the tear film and your eyes might feel dry as they are not as well lubricated. Artificial drops might help to ease symptoms. Antibiotics are also used if the condition doesn’t respond to regular cleaning. It is important to keep up with a regular treatment to prevent flare-ups. Blepharatis is usually managed by our Ophthalmic Nurse Practitioner.
