Blepharitis is inflammation of the eyelash follicles, causing the eyelid margins, or rims, to become red and swollen. It is a common condition which can develop at any age, but is more common in young children and people over 50.
Most people experience repeated episodes followed by periods with no symptoms. It is not possible to catch blepharitis from someone else who has it.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned, please make an appointment with the optical expert at your nearest Vision Express store.
