Eyelid Inflammation, Infection & Blepharitis at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center-Valparaiso & Knox, IN

By Scott Buck, M.D.

The eye doctors at Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center provide examination, diagnosis and treatment of Eyelid Inflammation, Infection and Blepharitis for patients of all ages. Eyelid inflammation, also called Blepharitis is a common and ongoing condition where the eyelids become inflamed and swollen often with oily particles and bacteria coating the eyelid margin near the base of the eyelashes. This is an annoying condition that causes irritation, itchiness, redness, and stinging or burning of the eyes. While the underlying causes of Blepharitis aren't completely understood, it can be associated with a bacterial eye infection, symptoms of dry eyes or certain types of skin conditions such as acne rosacea. Blepharitis is often a chronic, or ongoing, condition, but it can be controlled with one of more types of treatment that may include warm compresses, eyelid scrubs, antibiotic ointment, nutritional therapy and good overall eyebrow, scalp and hair hygiene.
