In a recent report of American ophthalmologists, it is estimated that nearly 37-47 percent of patients have had Blepharitis symptoms at some point. It is also shocking to note that it is more in young people than older ones, contradictory to the conventional eye inflammation problem.
Blepharitis and Dry Eyes occur at the same time, causing confusion whether one causes the other. Blepharitis is usually associated with bacterial overgrowth, living along eyelid margins and base of eyelids. The bacteria create a layer called bio-film overtime.
It can be treated with the attack of two-prongs. The glands blocks are heated and pressurized to melt the secretions.
Meibomian Gland Dysfunction also leads to dry eyes. Dysfunction in it may lead to poor outer oily layer and tear evaporation problems. In clinical procedure employs expert hands to handle the forceps as the pressure must be under the toleration level of the patient.
One must visit an expert ophthalmologist to get it done with perfection. There is also a temporary method to reduce pain caused by blepharitis. One may apply warm compress using warm flannels or eye bags on closed eyes, a simple home remedy.
The Blepharitis or MGD can make the situation worse and so consult a doctor at the earliest to avoid any future pain.
