Blepharitis Diagnosis and Treatment

Blepharitis Treatment with Our Ophthalmologist in Kissimmee, FL

If one or both of your eyelids are sore and red, you could be experiencing blepharitis. This condition occurs when your eyelids become inflamed, which can happen for different reasons. If you have sore eyelids from this condition, keep in mind that Eye Care Specialists of Florida offers blepharitis treatment with our ophthalmologist in Kissimmee.

Symptoms of Blepharitis

When you have blepharitis, common symptoms include soreness, redness, and itching that affects your eyelids. Your eyes might also have a burning sensation and feel watery or irritated. In some cases, blepharitis causes debris to build up along the base of your eyelashes. The symptoms of this condition can occur on and off or on a persistent basis.

Causes of Blepharitis

You can get blepharitis from anything that causes eyelid inflammation. Some of the causes of this condition include bacterial infections, fungal infections, dry eyes and eyelash mites. You can also have blepharitis from a condition called Meibomian gland dysfunction.

Treatment for Blepharitis

If you have blepharitis, our ophthalmologist in Kissimmee can provide you with treatment to ease your symptoms. Common treatment options include using eyelid scrubs to remove debris and bacteria. You might also benefit from using medicated eye drops or ointment, especially if your eyes are at risk of an infection when you have blepharitis. Our ophthalmologist might also recommend putting warm compresses on your eyelids for relief. Keeping your eyelids clean also helps prevent this condition from getting worse. Keep in mind that you should not wear contact lenses until your eyelids have fully healed.

When to Seek Treatment for Blepharitis

Blepharitis can end up becoming worse when it is left untreated, especially if you have a bacterial infection that requires antibiotic treatment. To lower your risk of eye infections from blepharitis, you should seek treatment if you experience any signs and symptoms of this condition.

  • My grandmother was suffering from a real bad pain in her right eye, after a few days we notice she was suffering from her cataract. I quickly called this office and they scheduled us right away and took care of her like if she was their own grandmother. I am forever grateful for this team. The girls in the front are exceptionally sweet, and thoughtful. I can recommend this office to anyone who is suffering from cataract and/or eye problem.

  • My experience with eye care specialist has been beyond exceptional. The staff is super friendly and they truly do care for their patients. I had a very dense cataract and the doctor made it a point to get it removed with just one surgery. I cannot express how much I admire this place and the staff believe me if you come here you too will be very happy. They take the time to evaluate and ensure that you are taken care of 100%. Thanks so much!!!
