Blepharitis (Swollen Eyelids)
Blepharitis (Swollen Eyelids) refers to an inflammation in the oily glands of the eyelid.
This usually results in swollen eyelids and excessive crusting of the eyelashes, most evident in the morning. Tenderness of the eyelids and a foreign body sensation in the eye may occur as well. If any of these findings are present, please consult an Ophthalmologist.
Blepharitis can be treated with:
- Warm compresses
- Eyelid scrubs using baby shampoo
