Blepharitis

Blepharitis is a common eye condition in which the eyelid becomes inflamed, resulting in red eyes, dryness and a feeling of grit in the eyes.

Usually blepharitis occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of your eyelashes come into contact with bacteria (such as from contact lenses and makeup) or get clogged or irritated. While the condition is uncomfortable and may be physically unattractive, it's usually doesn't lead to permanent eyesight damage.

Blepharitis can, however, be difficult to treat, which is why it's important to schedule an appointment with an FYidoctors optometrist if you think you may have developed the condition.
