Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelid caused by the glands around the eye lashes becoming blocked or infected as a result of a bacterial infection or an allergic reaction.
The condition is very common and often keeps coming back.
Blepharitis is not usually serious, but it causes discomfort and prevents wearing of contact lenses while experiencing symptoms.
There is no cure as such for Blepharitis. But the symptoms should be controlled through a systematic daily eye-cleaning routine. More severe cases may require antibiotics.
