Dry Eye Treatyment at Home -How To Unclog Meibomian OIl Glands


Dry Eye Treatments at home- How to unclog Meibomian Glands

You have been told you have meibomian gland dysfunction.  If you have Blepharitis, most likely you also have clogged meibomian glands.  

How you can help unclog oil glands at home

Have your eye doctor teach you how  to unclog your meibomian glands at home. 

There are expensive equipment that apply heat to melt the clogging, but your glands will clog again.  Use hot compress daily to keep them open. 

How Does Meibomian Oil Glands Work?

The meibomian glands live in the upper and lower eyelids.  There are approximately 15 - 20 glands per lid.  
The gland openings lie on the edge of the eyelid just inside the eyelash line.  The body of the gland is inside the tarsal plate, which is a very thin piece of cartilage that gives the eyelid its defined shape.  When your doctor everts your lid (flips it inside out) he is flipping over the tarsal plate.   Although most diagrams of meibomian glands show a hollow tubular structure that looks like a permanently open space, a meibomian gland is more of a potential space.  If the gland is empty of meibomian oils, it collapses in on itself.  In fact even when the gland is "full" only a very thin film of oils may actually separate the cells lining the walls of the meibomian gland.   
Meibomian oils are not squirted onto the surface of the eye.  They seep out slowly under the gentle pumping action of eyelid blinking, combined with continuous oil production which pushes oils out onto the eye lid margin when the gland's potential space is fully expanded.   When the eyelid margin becomes inflamed, this inflammation can "cap off" the meibomian gland orifices.  There are numerous causes of eyelid margin inflammation that will not be discussed here.  If the glands continue to vigorously produce oils, the oils erupt through the sides of the glands and coalesce into a mass commonly referred to as a stye.  However in many patients, obstruction of normal oil seepage causes the meibomian gland to decrease production and the oils retained in the gland become thick and degraded.   
In the past 2 - 4 years, eye care providers have become more widely aware of the connection between meibomian gland dysfunction and ocular surface symptoms.  One simple office test is to lightly press on the glands while the patient is seated at the slit lamp.  The examiner is looking for the quantity and quality of oils, how many glands express, how hard s/he has to push to make this happen, and how readily the oils disperse into the tear film. 
Meibomian oils are quite easy to see at the slit lamp but essentially impossible to see with the naked eye except through elaborate magnification methods.It is not necessary for 100% of the meibomian glands to function for adequate oils to be secreted into the tear film. Many asymptomatic patients have far fewer than 100% of the glands producing oils at any given time. Lower lid meibomian glands seem to "take a hit" sooner that upper lid glands, so it is important for your doctor to express both upper and lower lids to give your glands an overall function score. Patients with about 80% of their upper lid glands functioning well may have no symptoms even if the lower lid glands are producing almost nothing.   

How does oil gland expression mean?

Eye care providers sometimes prescribe meibomian gland self-expression or patients take it upon themselves to "clear out" their glands periodically. Generally the process is to apply heat to liquefy the oils, followed by eyelash cleaning (or sometimes the reverse order) and then gland expression.

How can TheraLife Eye Help?

TheraLife Eye is effective in reducing inflammation and stimulates tear flow for chronic dry eye relief. Often people with chronic dry eyes also have Blepharitis. Treating chronic dry eyes reduces the inflammation, and also helps to reduce the recurrence of blepharitis. It is highly recommended that those who have Blepharitis stay on TheraLife Eye long term to increase the rate of success.

How To Relief Sjogren's Dry Eyes Naturally.

How To Relief Sjogren's Dry Eyes Naturally.

What is Sjogren's Dry Eyes? 

Sjogren’s syndrome is a form of autoimmune disease where your body defense mechanism (immune system) attacks the organs that produce moisture. The most common symptoms are dry eye and dry mouth.

Sjogren’s syndrome related dry eyes are often severe, results in eye ulcers, corneal abrasion,  Some people with Sjögren's syndrome also have other autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus ( SLE), sclerosis, vasculitis, mixed connective tissue disease, Hashimoto's thyroiditis, primary biliary cirrhosis, and chronic autoimmune hepatitis.  Most Sjorgren’s patients are women.

Conventional therapy for Sjorgren’s chronic dry eye often includes eye drops – which make dry eye drier. Prescription drugs include steroids which can have side effects of glaucoma, liver and kidney damage. 


Natural Treatment for Sjogren's Dry Eyes

Your choice of dry eye relief is TheraLife Eye Autoimmune. 
How TheraLife Eye Autoimmune Formula Works

TheraLife Autoimmune Formula is all, and works by restoring tear secretions, reduce flares and attackes by:

1. Intracellular stimulation of tear glands (mybomian, lacrimal) to promote one’s glands to secret its own tears naturally and overcome issues with poor micro-circulation and membrane permeability.

Latest News - Chronic Eye Pain from Dry Eye Syndrome Can Be Permanent.


Latest News -Chronic Eye Pain from Dry Eye Syndrome Can Be Permanent

This research found chronic pain derived from dry eye disease can be permanent.  

This is an exert from a pre-publication titled  "Neuropathic Ocular Pain: An Important Yet Underevaluated Feature of Dry Eye
Galor A, Levitt RC, Felix ER, Martin ER, Sarantopoulos CD. Eye (Lond). 2014 Nov 7. [Epub ahead of print]

People who suffer from dry eye have a variety of complaints including blurred vision, irritation, and pain. The pain that these patients typically experience is often a sharp, transient, stabbing pain, or a more chronic situation  known as neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is thought to be secondary to changes in the somato-sensory pathway.  It is this change that can be permanent even after dry eye syndrome is relieved.

The authors of this review conducted a PubMed search using key words of “dry eye” and various descriptors of pain. They determined that environmental factors and inflammation can cause ocular surface damage which can trigger alterations in peripheral corneal nerves. These changes are thought to cause dry eye sensations and phenotypic modifications which lower the activation threshold of the nerve fibers. If ocular surface damage persists, or if the inflammatory cascade is not dampened, shifts may occur in the central nervous system (CNS), producing “central sensitization.” The hallmark of central sensitization is that pain continues to occur, even after the damage has resolved. This is commonly seen in dry eye patients where they continue to be symptomatic but no ocular surface findings are observed. The process of central sensitization may initially be reversible, but it often becomes permanent.

After traditional dry eye therapy to improve the health of the eye, many examinations have determined the dry eye symptoms are much improved.  Patients still complain of eye pain.  Conclusion is, - if central sensitization has already occurred, pain may linger regardless of the successful management of the ocular surface. Unfortunately, therapy for managing this type of chronic ocular pain is lacking and would be an interesting area of development.

How can TheraLife Eye Help?

TheraLife Eye is effective in reducing inflammation and stimulates tear flow for chronic dry eye relief. Often people with chronic dry eyes also have Blepharitis.

People With Blepharitis More Likely to Have Certain Inflammatory Diseases, Psychological Issues, Cardiovascular Diseases and More

New Research Findings

According to recent research, several eye and systemic problems are more common among people with chronic blepharitis, but the reasons aren't always clear.
Researchers in Israel examined records of 16,706 people diagnosed with blepharitis in the Central District of Clalit Health Services during 2000-2009, plus an equal number of randomly selected age- and gender-matched people for the control group.
Ashkenazi Jews, people who were poorer and people who lived in urban centers were more likely to develop blepharitis than the rest of the population.
Also associated with blepharitis was the presence of certain inflammatory diseases (such as gastritis and asthma), psychological problems (such as anxiety and depression), hypothyroidism, cardiovascular diseases and certain eye conditions (chalazion and pterygium).
Most associated with blepharitis were chalazia, rosacea, pterygia, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and gastritis.

A study report appeared in the June 2011 issue of the journal Ophthalmology.

Why Do Dry Eyes Cause Watery Eyes?


Why Do Dry Eyes Cause Watery Eyes?


Why do my eyes water if I have “dry eye?” 

Dr. Amber Gaume Giannoni suggested this explaining as a “cake batter” analogy. Very interesting.

In this strategy, it which compares the tear film to a cake recipe while introducing the concepts of Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and reflex tearing. One could explain to the patient that, “all cake batter ingredients must be in perfect balance for a cake to turn out. If you don’t have enough oil, you can’t just add extra water and expect a delicious, moist cake. In fact, even though extra water is added, your cake will likely turn out dry and crumbly. The tears that are responsible for lubricating the eyes are similar to a cake recipe. The components of the tears, which are mainly mucous, aqueous and oil, must be in the correct balance to keep your eyes from feeling dry. In your case, your tear-film doesn’t have enough oil. Your eyes are trying to compensate for this by tearing, which simply adds more water into the mix. Unfortunately, this isn’t the right recipe to keep your eyes feeling and seeing great.”
Amber Gaume Giannoni, OD, FAAO     March 26th, Ocular Surface News- Optometric Management

How to stop tear over production- Watery Eyes

Artificial tears make watery eye condition even worse.
The proper way to relief watery dry eyes is to:
  1. Balance tear production – restore normal cell functions to tear secretion glands - lacrimal and meibomian glands
  2. Train your brain to stop crying – to stop tear over production.
TheraLife Eye can help!
TheraLife Eye restores both lacrimal and meibomian gland functions in order to establish balanced, sustainable tear for lasting relief.

How Clogged Meibomian OIl Glands Are Related to Sjogren's.

 How Clogged Meiboamian Oil Glands Are Related to Sjogren's

 How Many People Have Sjogren's

Sjögren’s Syndrome (SS) affects approximately 3.1 million Americans and 430,000 Canadians in North America. Ninety percent of the Sjogrens population is female and the disease is characterized by infiltration of lymphocytes into exocrine glands, including sebaceous, sweat, salivary, and lacrimal glands.

New Study - Sjogren's and MGD

Recent experiments have also reported that a common finding in patients with Sjogrens is androgen deficiency, which may lead to meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).1,2,3 MGD is a common clinical condition and a major cause of lipid tear deficiency and evaporative dry eye.4 To date, very few studies have investigated the physical changes or secretions of the meibomian glands (MGs) in patients with Sjogrens.

This abstract5 focuses on a study that evaluated Meibomian loss (dropout) and lipid layer thickness in patients with and without Sjogrens. Eleven participants with Sjogrens (1M and 10F; mean age=56.0±9.1yrs) and 10 non dry eye (NDE) controls (3M and 7F; mean age=58.5±4.7yrs) were recruited. All participants completed the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) questionnaire to assess dryness symptoms. Parameters evaluated include:

1. Non-invasive tear break up time (NITBUT)
2. Lipid layer thickness (LLT) was assessed by appearance using the Tearscope Plus (Keeler).
3. Meibomian Gland Imaging - The upper and lower lids of all subjects were everted and the MGs imaged using the infra-red (IR) camera of the Keratograph 4 (Oculus). Meibomian gland percentage drop-out score (MGDS) was obtained by digital analysis using ImageJ, which was based on the complete or partial gland loss observed in both lids. Subjective analysis (0-6 score) was also performed.


The Sjogrens group recorded significantly higher Ocular Surface Disease Index scores, reduced Lipid Layer Thickness and lower Tear Breakup Time compared to controls. Percentage Meibomian Gland loss and subjective Meibomian Gland Drop Out Score  was also significantly higher for the Sjogrens group.

Higher MGDS and reduced LLT and NITBUT may partly contribute to the severe ocular surface changes often observed in patients with SS. Meibography is a quick and easy assessment of the degree of MG drop-out. Digital grading via ImageJ may be time-consuming in a clinical setting, however, subjective methods for analyzing the physical loss of MGs is a good option and could aid in a better understanding and management of the disease.

How TheraLife Eye Autoimmune Formula Works

TheraLife Autoimmune Formula is a natural way to provide relief for both chronic dry eye, dry mouth and Sjorgren’s Syndrome. It works by:

1. Intracellular stimulation of tear glands (mybomian, lacrimal) to promote one’s glands to secret its own tears naturally and overcome issues with poor micro-circulation and membrane permeability. This is the key factor in Chronic Dry Eye Syndrome.

2. Natural ingredients that act as an immune suppressant (immune modulator)

3. Improve performance, endurance and energy levels.

4. No side effects of prescription drugs

5. Provides continuous daily support.

How To Stop Watery Dry Eyes

 How To Stop Watery Dry Eyes

Do you have watery eyes?  Looks like you are crying all the time, eyes are sore, red, irritated. 

Doctors tell you to use more eye drops, your eyes are getting worse.

Watery eyes is tear over production or poor drainage of the tear duct.

Major cause of watery eye is Dry Eyes. Treat Dry Eyes with TheraLife Eye and tear over production will stop.  See how TheraLife Eye can help.

Causes of Watery Dry Eyes

Watery eye is the result of irritation or inflammation in or around your eye that causes your eye to increase tear production. One or both of your eyes may become watery. Tears make sure that debris, bacteria are cleared out as to not cause infections.

Watery eye is usually caused by irritation (e.g dry eyes,  cornea abrasion) or eye infection , injury to the eye, or a common cold. Other symptoms of eye irritation, including itching, redness, a gritty feeling, and swelling of the eyelids, often happens in watery eyes.

Watery Eyes Causes
Tears are necessary for the normal lubrication of the eye and to wash away particles and foreign bodies.
  • Dry Eyes- A major cause of watery eyes.  Dry eye causes the eyes to become uncomfortable, which stimulates the body to produce Reflex Tear  the tear that is  you cry with in an attempt to lubricate your eyes.  Reflex tear is of poor quality and tend to wash away the natural lubricants that your eyes produce, making your eyes drier and drier.  Key reason is, your lacrimal gland which normally produce tears is not functioning properly.   In order to stop tear over production,  you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears.  TheraLife Eye can help you  balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production.    It is important that you  test for dry eyes when you have watery eyes.
  • Allergy to mold and dust.
  • Blepharitis- read more about how TheraLife eye can help with Blepharitis and Watery Eyes both.
  • Blockage of the tear duct
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Aging is a major cause of water dry eyes because dry eye is a natural process of aging.
In order to stop tear over production,  you need to get the lacrimal and meibomian glands both to secrete balanced tears.  TheraLife Eye can help you  balance the normal cell functions of your tear secretion glands and stop tear over production.    It is important that you  test for dry eyes when you have watery eyes.

Watery Eyes Symptoms:

Watery eye may accompany other common symptoms including:
  • Burning feeling in the eyes
  • Crusting of the eyelid margin
  • Discharge from the eyes
  • Gritty feeling
  • Redness of the eyes or eyelids
  • Runny nose (nasal congestion)
  • Sense of a foreign body in the eye
  • Sneezing
  • Swelling of the face

TheraLife Can Help

Consider the cause of the tearing. If the eyes feel dry and burn and then begin to tear,  artificial tears make eyes even drier.   However, if watery eyes persist, frequent use of eye drops are no longer effective.  Try TheraLife Eye which normalize both the lacrimal and meibomian gland functions intra-cellularly.
If the eyes are itchy and uncomfortable, consider allergy as a cause. Over-the-counter antihistamines can be useful. A mucous discharge from the eyes or red eyes may indicate a blocked tear duct or eyelid problem.

Watery Eye Treatment

  • TheraLife Eye for Watery Dry Eyes caused by Chronic Dry Eyes.
  • Start using TheraLife Eye for chronic dry eye treatment and get your tear balanced naturally.
Some steps you can take to prevent dry, itchy, eye irritation include remembering to blink regularly when using your computer and taking occasional breaks to rest your eyes and prevent eye strain. Increase the humidity in your home or work environment if your eyes are dry and irritated. Wear sunglasses to reduce eye irritation from sun and wind exposure, and drink plenty of water to prevent becoming dehydrated and to maintain healthy tearing.

How To Prevent Eye Damage from Computers, Cell Phones and More.

How to Prevent Eye Damages from Computers, Cell Phones and More

Vision is the sense most heavily relied on by modern, technological society. Hearing may come in as a close second, but even without a sense of hearing, we could still navigate most electronics. Without our eyes, that becomes a laborious task. But what, exactly, are the screens we look at so much, doing to our eyes?

Blue Light Damages the Retina

Those glowing flat panes, held mere inches from our face, emit a powerful light that can, opticians say, lead to permanent eye damage. Much of the light that comes out of a screen is blue-violet. Studies show that, over time, too much exposure to blue-violet light can injure the retina. Retina damage can lead to macular degeneration, the most common cause of geriatric blindness.


Another source of eye injury is the microwave radiation emitted by cell phones. In an Israeli study, the lenses of calves (which strongly resemble humans) were exposed to the heat and the microwave level emitted by a cell phone. After two weeks, the cells showed signs of damage that limited their ability to focus light. Some had also irreversibly bubbled, a precursor to developing cataracts.

Eye Movement Saccades

A related problem is that when we focus on our screen tiny eye movements called saccades are disrupted.  Saccades deliver refreshed visual information to the brain and blinking momentarily disrupts the saccade.  So, when we need to focus our vision, gazing at our tablet, the blink rate slows so that we can continue the saccades without interruption.  And in turn, when blink rate slows, the protective tear film covering the surface of the eye begins to deteriorate. The tear film not only keeps our eyes moist, but brings nourishment and removes waste.  The end result is dry eye syndrome and red, irritated, tired eyes.

Blink Rate

Not only that, but our blink rate is reduced significantly further contributing to dryness.  Normally we blink about 18 times a minute, but on electronic devices, we blink only about 6 to 9 times a minute or less.

Heavy Usage

The average adult spends seven hours a day in front of a screen, and twenty-somethings check their cell phones about 32 times a day. The technology is too new to know how all that time will add up in later life, when our senses deteriorate anyway. Further research is needed to clarify potential risks.

In the meantime, to be on the safe side, opticians recommend turning down screen brightness and decreasing screen time when possible. Heavy users can also purchase a screen cover to decrease exposure. Avoid staring at a bright screen in dark lighting conditions, such as checking messages on your cell phone in a dark bedroom. Taking breaks, remembering to blink and attention to exercise, diet and proper supplementation can also help to prevent eye damage from screens. Check out our tips for avoiding eyestrain from computers.  These points are also important for all users of mobile devices.

How To Relief Winter Dry Eyes


How To Relief Winter Dry Eyes

Winter, Snow, Dry Heat - My Eyes are So Dry, They Hurt!

For some people, this only happens in the winter when hot air furnaces and heaters are turned on. The heaters create hot, dry air movement that allows tears to evaporate quickly. Sometimes, increased water intake and the use of artificial tears do not seem to help. How annoying!

Low temperature during winter months also cause lower moisture in the air, further exacerbates dry eye symptoms.

For those who already have dry eyes, the dry eye condition seems to be worse as soon as the heat is on at home or at work.

What Can I Do to Relief Winter Dry Eyes

1. Use a humidifier in the central heating system – this will require frequent cleaning to ensure bacteria and other organisms do not grow in the water reservoir.

2. Use a humidifier near your desk or inside an office

3. Drink at least 8 glasses of water.

4. Sit away from a hot air vent

5. Do not use artificial tears often, it will only make your eyes feel drier. Artificial tears tend to wash away the key tear thickening components -mucin and lipids and make your tear evaporate easier.

6.. Try TheraLife Eye Enhanced to help stimulate and produce tears naturally from your own eyes.

7. For those who already have dry eyes and are already taking TheraLife Eye Enhanced, increase dosage during winter months for relief! You can decrease the dosage again when spring comes in March when moisture content in the air increases.

How To Prevent Dry Eyes Whilte You Age

How To Prevent Dry Eyes While You Age.


How To Prevent Dry Eyes While You Age. 

Dry eyes is a natural phenomena while we age.  With the advent of large number of baby bommers now reaching the age of 50 and over, this is becoming an increasing problem.

Physical parameters play a big part, such as decreased circulatory health resulting in less blood being delivered to organs and extremities including the eyes. Dry eyes can be very uncomfortable, irritated, red, hurt, can't open eyes in sun light, difficulty driving and more.

What Causes Dry Eyes?

As we age, our body produces less tears. Here are some examples.
  • Watery Eyes-More than 50 % of the watery eyes are caused by dry eyes.  Usually the dry eye condition existed for some time and was not getting relief.  The brain started to cry in order to provide moisture.  The result is excessive tearing.  This type of tear is called reflux tear which you have no control over.  In order to treat watery dry eyes we have to first treat dry eyes, then train the brain not to cry.  Typically it will take 3 months on initial high dose TheraLife Eye in order to stop tear over production.  To date, TheraLife Eye seems to be the only relief for watery dry eyes.
  • Menopause- Hormone change induce dry eyes, especially in women over 50.   The typical symptoms of menopause will be evident, hot flashes, insomnia, vaginal dryness, mood swings, fatigue, headaches and dry eyes. 
  • Tear Production- Decreased tear production is a natural aging process. Tears protect, wash away dust, soothe, provide oxygen and nutrients to the cornea, and help fight eye infections by removing bacteria in our eyes.  TheraLife Eye focuses to revive the tear production glands in order to achieve normal levels of tear production.

  • Medications- Medications often have side effects that result in dry eyes.  Particularly, antidepressants, antihistamines, muscle relaxants, sleeping pills, and pain relievers. Natural therapy is an alternative more balanced approach to aging diseases with less side effects.
  • Caffeine in foods- Caffeine in general tend to constrict blood vessels in the long run.  We recommend that you  avoid these foods and drinks if possible as caffeine is known to dehydrate the body.  You may have heard there are reports that caffeine can increase tear production.  This concept is worth while verifying.
  • Computer use- Internet allows us to connect with the world. However, sitting in front of the computer for long periods of time can  dry your eyes out.  Rest often and remember to blink.

Best Treatment for Meibomian Gland Dusfunction - Azithromycine

Best Treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction- Azithromycin


Best Treatment for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction - Azithromycine

New Research Indicates Azithromycin is more effective than Doxycycline for Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and Blepharitis.

There are several studies concerning the use of topical azithromycin in ocular surface diseases. 
New research at the University of Louisville compared the effectiveness of topical azithromycin versus oral doxycycline therapy in meibomian gland dysfunction (and  Blepharitis) Twenty-two (22) subjects were treated with topical azithromucin solution for one month and seven subjects were treated with oral doxycycline for two (20 months. The study concluded that while both topical azithromycin and oral doxycycline improved clinical signs and symptoms of meibomian gland dysfunction, the "response to azithromycin is more rapid and more robust than doxycycline."
Another research study from the Ohio State University evaluated the efficacy of a four-week treatment with topical 1.0% azithromycin solution versus rewetting drops in patients with contact lens related dry eye.  Patients are able to wear contact lenses two-hours longer  throughout the four-week study period when azithromycin solution was use.
Blepharitis being a chronic inflammation of the eye lid goes hand in hand with Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and chronic dry eyes. Here is how TheraLife Eye can help!

How To Treat Blepharitis - Inflammation of Eye Lids.



How To Treat Blepharitis - Inflammation of Eye Lids

Blepharitis is  chronic inflammation of the eyelid.  Onset can be acute ( red, puffy, painful eyes) or resolving without treatment within 2–4 weeks (most like this is due to lid hygiene).  Most of the time, blepharitis is a long standing chronic inflammation varying in severity.  The causative agents could be staphylococcal, parasites, defined as posterior rosacea or meiobomitis ( involving meibomian gland dysfunction.

Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms that are associated with the chronic inflammation can be:
  • Redness of the eyelids.
  • Flaking of skin on the lids.
  • Crusting at the lid margins,  worse in the morning upon waking.
  • Cysts at the lid margin.
  • Red eye.
  • Debris in the tear film, seen under microscope
  • Gritty sensation of the eye or foreign-body sensation- dry eyes
  • Reduced vision.
  • Eye itching
Eye lid redness and swelling are common and they tend to appear in more severe cases. The symptoms can slightly vary based on the exact cause of the condition. Blepharitis due to allergy can cause dark lids, symptom which is known as "allergic shiner" and which tends to be more frequent in children rather than adults. Infectious blepharitis is accompanied by a yellow- or green-colored discharge which is more abundant in the morning and which leads to stucky lids. Blepharitis may also cause eyelid matting or "gluing" of the lashes.

Other blepharitis symptoms include sensitivity to light, eyelashes that grow abnormally or even loss of eyelashes described as being falling out.  Blepharitis that localizes in the skin of the eyelids may cause styes or chalazia, which appear as red bumps, sometimes with a yellow spot if infection is present. Although pain is not common among blepharitis symptoms, if the condition persists or becomes painful, the condition is chronic and severe.  TheraLife can help.

Infectious blepharitis can cause hard crusts around the eyelashes which leave small ulcers that may bleed or ooze after cleaning.

As a general rule, blepharitis symptoms which do not improve, despite good hygiene consisting of proper cleaning and care of the eye area, give TheraLife a call.

People who usually wear contact lenses may have more trouble in coping with their symptoms, because the lenses cause further irritation to the eye.

It is common for people with infectious blepharitis to be on systemic anti-biotics to prevent eye infections.
