What drops are the best for blepharitis?
Blepharitis is a chronic recurrent inflammation of the lids which can cause discharge from the eyes, red and irritated eyes, styes or chalazions, loss of eyelashes or misdirected eyelashes, and dry eye.
Blepharitis is treated with lid soaks, followed by lid scrubs, twice a day for life, and artificial tears to treat the dry eye which usually accompanies blepharitis.
Additionally, topical steroid/antibiotic drops and ointments can help, and some patients do well with oral antibiotics for short periods. See your ophthalmologist for evaluation and treatment. He or she can decide which treatment/drops would be best for you.
