Description of DisorderBlepharitis is a common disorder that involves the edge of the eyelid in the area from where the eyelashes grow. It is a chronic low-grade inflammation, similar to dandruff, which leads to the buildup of crust on the eyelashes and mild redness and swelling of the skin in the same area. The purpose of treatment is to control the symptoms as it is a condition that cannot be cured with a single treatment.
Symptoms• Presence of crust or “sleep” adherent to eyelashes and edge of eyelid
• Itching of the eyelid in the area of the eyelashes
• Redness of the edge of the eyelid
• Feeling that there is grit in the eye or that the eyes are dry
• Diagnosed by ophthalmologic examination using a biological microscope.
