Blepharitis is a common condition where the edges of your eyelids become red, sore and inflamed.  Sometimes your eyelids may become swollen.

The condition is usually long term but symptoms can be managed. Good hygiene can relieve symptoms.  Severe cases may require antibiotics.

Blepharitis occurs when the oil glands at the edge of your eyelids become blocked. This causes your eyelids to become sore and inflamed.  The condition can happen at any age.
