Blepharitis and Eyelid Inflammation in Sacramento
Are You Suffering from Blepharitis or Meibomian Gland Dysfunction?
The symptoms of blepharitis, or inflammation of the eyelids, are common, and you may not even realize you even have it. While the inflammation from blepharitis isn’t contagious and is unlikely to cause any long-term damage, it can be uncomfortable, and can often present itself through symptoms like:
- Watery or red-looking eyes
- Burning or gritty sensation in your eyes
- Crusted eyelashes and greasy, red, swollen eyelids
- Sensitivity to light
- Blurry vision that improves after blinking
What Is Blepharitis?
While you may be familiar with its symptoms, you may not realize what causes blepharitis. This condition develops when the oil glands near the base of your eyelashes become clogged, which is also known as meibomian gland dysfunction. The exact reason for this clogging isn’t always clear, but it’s often associated with eyelash mites, known as demodex mites, as well as allergies, rosacea or infection.
