Shreee Ram Hospital



Blepharitis can affect individuals of all ages and may lead to symptoms such as eyelid redness, itching, irritation, burning sensation, and crusting or flaking along the eyelid margins.

Our team of experienced ophthalmologists and eye care professionals at Shree Ram Hospital is dedicated to providing comprehensive evaluations and personalized treatment plans to help patients with blepharitis achieve relief from symptoms and improve overall eyelid health.

Diagnosis of blepharitis typically involves a thorough eye examination and assessment of the eyelids, eyelashes, and tear film. Our skilled ophthalmologists may use specialized techniques such as slit-lamp biomicroscopy and meibomian gland evaluation to identify signs of inflammation, eyelid irregularities, and dysfunction of the meibomian glands, which are responsible for producing the oily layer of the tear film.

Once a diagnosis of blepharitis is established, our team works closely with patients to develop personalized management strategies tailored to their specific symptoms and underlying causes. Treatment options for blepharitis may include:

  1. Eyelid Hygiene: Proper eyelid hygiene is essential for managing blepharitis and preventing flare-ups. Our eye care professionals provide guidance on daily eyelid cleaning routines using warm compresses, gentle eyelid scrubs, and eyelid massage to remove debris, bacteria, and excess oil from the eyelid margins.
  2. Topical Treatments: Depending on the severity of symptoms, topical medications such as antibiotic ointments, corticosteroid eye drops, or lubricating eye drops may be prescribed to reduce inflammation, alleviate discomfort, and promote healing of the eyelids.
  3. Meibomian Gland Expression: For patients with meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) associated with blepharitis, meibomian gland expression may be performed to clear blocked glands and improve the quality of the oily tear film. This procedure can help relieve symptoms such as dry eye and improve tear film stability.
  4. Oral Medications: In some cases of severe or chronic blepharitis, oral medications such as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, or immunomodulators may be prescribed to control inflammation and manage symptoms.
  5. Lifestyle Modifications: Our team offers guidance on lifestyle modifications and environmental changes to help minimize factors that contribute to blepharitis, such as avoiding exposure to allergens, reducing eye strain from digital device use, and maintaining proper nutrition and hydration.
