DRY EYES ARE A MODERN PROBLEM

Blepharitis/Lid Hygiene

Do you suffer from any of the following symptoms?

  • Eye irritation
  • Burning sensations
  • Tearing
  • Foreign body sensations
  • Dryness
  • Crusty debris in the lashes
  • Red eyelid margins
  • Loss of eyelashes
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Itchy and or swollen eyelids

Developing a regular routine of eye hygiene is essential in the treatment of Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids) as it tends to recur and rarely disappears completely. It is important that you clean your eyelids every day, whether or not you are experiencing any symptoms. You should consider it part of your daily routine, like showering or brushing your teeth.
