Crusty Red Eyes? Could it be Blepharitis?
This story sounds familiar? Your have been diagnosed with dry eyes, you use eye drops, warm compress, cleaning eye lids with baby shampoo, and your eyes are still red, dry, and irritable. What else could be going on?
Red dry eyes are often caused by:
- Chronic dry eye
Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome:Red eyes is a typical chronic dry eye syndrome, in addition to feeling dry, tired, irritated, light sensitive, sandy gritty, and sometimes watery.
Conjunctivitis is caused by viral or bacterial infection. Bacterial conjunctivitis can be treated with antibiotic eye drops. Viral infections typically runs through a 14 day cycle and stop. For ocular herpes, please consult your physician. Acyclovir is often the treatment of choice for herpes.
Blepharitis:Blepharitis is a recurring condition caused by inflammation of the eye lids. Meibomian tear glands (produce tear thickness) is often involved. Common causes include rosacea, dandruff, sometimes allergies, bacterial growth on the eye lids. Typical recommendation is to use warm compress daily, clean eye lids with baby shampoo followed by gentle massage of both upper and lower eye lids. Unfortunately, blepharitis tend to recur. Eye lid hygiene is key.
