Blepharitis is a condition that can cause a lot of embarrassment. Treating it requires work, but once you get into a good routine, it should be easier. The following are a few tips for how to maintain healthy eyes.   Warm the Area   Some persons experience relief by applying a warm compress around the eyes. This can also help you to stop itching the area, as the heat tends to provide a soothing effect. When done at the beginning of the day, it can also loosen crusty deposits in preparation for scrubbing.

Slide 3:

Continuously Clean and Lubricate Your Eyelids   Since blepharitis is chronic in most people, daily scrubbing should be part of your management plan. Use a sensitive formula, such as baby shampoo. Artificial tears are great for relieving dry eyes throughout the day.   Stay on Top of Your Medication Schedule   Many doctors start patients out on a topical antibiotic to fight bacterial infection. In cases of inflammation, your physician may prescribe a steroid cream.

In any case, know what’s expected of you and follow through punctually with the recommended dosages.   There are lots of things you can do to keep your eyes in good shape at home.
