Blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelid)
This is a common condition where the edges of the eye lids become sore and inflamed.
A crust appears on the edges of the eyelids which sometimes means the eyes are stuck together in the morning.
The main treatment regimen is a daily cleaning routine but it is often quite difficult to remove the crust.
Here at Evans Pharmacy we recommend the use of Blephaclean Wipes to help remove the crust and an oil based lubricant which can be used around the eye and isn't harmful if it goes into the eye.
If you are not sure whether you are suffering from blepharitis then please pop into one of our branches for one our pharmacists to look at your eyes.
When should I go the doctors?
If you have any pain or visual changes then a visit to your local GP/Out of Hours is needed.
