Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelashes and eyelids. The symptoms include red, itchy, irritated eyes, or a feeling like there is something in your eyes. Blepharitis can result from simple lash debris like dandruff, bacteria and skin oils or can happen because of a mite, called Demodex, that lives in the hair follicles of the human eyelash. After an in-office lid scrub to clear debris on a microscopic level, the best way to keep blepharitis under control is with at-home lid scrubs 2-3 times per week. We recommend OcuSoft foam or pre-moistened wipes for this purpose. They are widely available over-the-counter, in drug stores, grocery stores and online.
