Blepharitis is a non-contagious inflammation of your eyelids. It can affect people of all ages. Blepharitis usually impacts both eyes at the same time and occurs at the eyelash line. While this medical condition is often treatable, in one of its forms, it’s considered chronic and can be difficult to treat.
People with blepharitis usually are found to have other skin irritations, such as scalp dandruff and acne rosacea, which can be treated at the same time by a skin specialist. There is a rather large variety of symptoms for blepharitis — as well as the many diseases that can cause it.
If you are having any abnormal visual symptoms, you should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by a physician for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan as it may be a symptom or sign of a serious illness or condition.
