Blepharitis can be caused by several things including medical conditions, pollutants in the air, dust, eye makeup, eye surgeries, infection in the eye or contact lenses.
There are several treatments available to help alleviate many of the symptoms. Some include heat therapy, lid wipes, medication drops, as well as in office treatments.
