What are the Symptoms of Dry Eyes and Blepharitis?
Chronic tearing, and watery eyes, ocular irritation (gritty/sandy feeling in eyes), blurry vision, especially when reading, watching TV, or in the evening. Patients with Blepharitis will also have crusty eyelids in the morning.
Many people suffer from chronic flares of redness, tearing and irritation, and believe that they are having frequent bouts of “pink eye” or bacterial infection of the eye. Bacterial conjunctivitis is quite rare and requires short-term treatment, and rarely comes back. However, blepharitis is chronic, the symptoms frequently return, and requires long-term therapy.
