Can Eyelid Scurbs Help Treat Dry Eye Syndrome?

Can Eyelid Scrubs Help Treat Dry Eye Syndrome?

Blepharitis causes the eyelids to become inflamed. This inflammation causes the eyes to itch and turn red. It also causes the eyelids to swell and leads to scaly patches around the eyes. When this happens, it is generally because the eyelids have been infected with some kind of external bacteria. If you have these symptoms, it's time to see an ophthalmologist or eye surgeon to have the condition examined. At Eye Care Specialists of Florida, we have years of experience providing Kissimmee, FL residents with reliable ophthalmology services.

Dry Eye and Blepharitis

Often, these two conditions occur together. About half of the people who have blepharitis also have dry eye. This may be because when the eyes are dry, they are less able to fight off a bacterial invasion. Using a wet, warm towel on your eyes can provide temporary relief by adding moisture to the eye and reducing swelling. Cases of blepharitis vary in intensity and can last anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months. Children with blepharitis often carry the condition into adulthood.

Scrubbing the Eyelids

Another way to treat this condition is to use a diluted shampoo to clean the eyelids. It is often recommended for patients to use a baby shampoo diluted with water. This type of shampoo, especially with it being diluted, should not sting the eyes. It may be necessary to repeat this scrubbing as often as daily. If you are suffering from a persistent case of dry eye or blepharitis, our eye doctor will examine your eye and provide you with the most effective dry eye treatment possible.
