Chrissanthie Info Centre

This is an infection of the eyelids and eyelash follicles and is due to bacteria called Staphylococcus or sometimes parasitic mites called Demodex. It is the commonest cause of red, scratchy, dry eyes and eye specialists see it all the time. You will not know what the cause of your red, scratchy, dry eyes is until you have been examined by an eye specialist or optometrist at a slit lamp (microscope).

30% or more of children and adults suffer from Blepharitis! 66% of elderly people suffer from blepharitis.
This is huge!

Demodex is a particularly nasty little mite which sleeps inside your eyelash follicles during the day and only comes out to excrete or procreate on your eyelashes at night! These excretions (and the mite itself) are very irritating to your eyes, especially in the mornings when you wake up. If you have Demodex blepharitis you will suffer from red, sore, scratchy eyes especially in the mornings. Temporary relief is experienced by washing your eyes or splashing them with water.

Your ophthalmologist may prescribe antibiotic or cortisone ointment for a limited time if the infection is severe enough.
