Uncomfortable sensations in the eye
Patients with blepharitis say they have a burning or gritty sensation in their eyes or that their eyes feel though they were burning. Eyes are sometimes red or there is a feeling of there being a foreign object in the eye when moving the eyeballs. Both eyes are usually affected.
The treatment of blepharitis is primarily directed towards eliminating the causes that led to the condition. The disease is often long-term and chronic. The main therapy is to clean the edges of the eyelids with cotton swabs using previously boiled water, diluted baby shampoo or special preparations for eyelid cleansing (Lid Care). In case of dry eye, tear substitutes, preferably without preservatives, are prescribed.
We know of several reasons for the onset of conjunctivitis or conjunctiva inflammation. Among the most common are bacterial infections, viral infections and allergies.
Eye allergies are very common. We can be allergic to chemical substances, medications or different types of grass and trees in different seasons.
