Blepharitis

A common and persistent inflammation of the eyelids frequently occurring in people with oily skin, dandruff, or dry eyes. Symptoms include irritation, itching, dandruff-like flaking along the lashes and eyelids, and occasionally a red eye. While everyone's skin has bacteria on its surface, in certain individuals the bacteria thrives at the base of the eye lashes. Blepharitis can be a stubborn condition. While there is no cure, it can be controlled through simple treatment at home. For more information, consult your ophthalmologist.
