  • Watery, gritty eyes

  • Light sensitivity

  • Contact lens discomfort
  • Difficulty opening your eyes in the morning

Poor eyelid hygiene and blocked tear glands are usually the cause of dry eye and blepharitis. The tear film is made up of three layers: the mucus, aqueous and lipid layer. The lipid layer is produced by meibomian glands found among the lid margin which can often become blocked. This means the lipid layer is reduced and cannot prevent the aqueous layer from evaporating, causing the eyes to dry out and become itchy and sore.

Blepharitis symptoms can be worsened by certain behaviour and lifestyle traits. If you suffer from dry eye or blepharitis, it is a good idea to consider doing the following:

  • Reduce prolonged contact lens wear
  • Reduce screen-time
  • Avoid low-humidity environments if possible
  • Eat a diet rich in omega-3 and vitamin D

Blepharitis is an irritating and unsightly condition that, at worst, can obscure vision and this is typically reversible. It should not do any lasting damage to eyesight, unless complicated by corneal changes. If you are seeking eye surgery, it is important to treat your blepharitis first to reduce the risk of slowing recovery time from surgery and rarely vision loss.
