Blepharitis Symptoms & Causes

You know you have Blepharitis....

....when your eyes feel sore and itchy along the eyelids. You may also see white flakes (like dandruff) sticking to your eyelashes. Blepharitis is a chronic condition. At root cause is Meibomian Gland Dysfunction - failure of the oil secreting glands along the eyelids to secrete the vital oily component of healthy tears. It can last years as doctors/optometrists and their patients struggle to overcome it.

There have been many difficulties using detergent, antibiotic, preservative and hot flannel based treatments. They can be frustratingly ineffective and detergents de-stabilise the already weakened tear film by destroying its essential oily layer.

 

 

Today, the most significant improvement in treating blepharitis is to clear the waxy blockages in the Meibomian Glands and free the vital oily tear component.

Consultant Ophthalmologist Teifi James' investigations led to the development of a Warm Compress Mask. It has transformed blepharitis eyelid treatment with its natural, pleasant to use and regular routine that removes the blockages that are the underlying cause of Blepharitis and its related eye conditions.
