Blepharitis (Swollen Eyelids)
Blepharitis (Swollen Eyelids) refers to an inflammation in the oily glands of the swollen eyelid. (note: While not the same illness, blepharitis can present with similar symptoms to conjunctivitis, or pink eye.)
This usually results in swollen eyelids and excessive crusting of the eyelashes, most evident in the morning. Tenderness of the swollen eyelid and a foreign body sensation in the eye may occur as well. If any of these findings are present, please consult an Ophthalmologist.
Blepharitis (swollen eyelid) can be treated with:
- Warm compresses
- Eyelid scrubs using baby shampoo
