Blepharitis, a common eyelid condition, often results in itching, burning, redness, tearing, and irritation.
Small micro-bacteria can accumulate at the base of the eyelashes causing these symptoms. Chronic blepharitis can cause serious eyelid inflammatory conditions that may need surgical treatment.
There are different treatments for blepharitis depending on the severity of the condition.
