Blepharitis


Eyelid inflammation is known as blepharitis. This is often seen as enlargements of the glands of the eyelids that will appear as small abscesses on the inner surface of the eyelid. Gland contents may be expressed by the ophthalmologist and the contents cultured. Treatment will involve broad-spectrum antibiotics given by mouth, topically applied antibiotics and warm, moist compresses.
