Blepharitis is an inflammation of your eyelids. It can make eyelids and eyelashes red and crusty and make your eyes feel irritated or itchy. It can also lead to burning, soreness or stinging in your eyes. The symptoms tend to be worse in the morning when you wake up and your eyelids may be stuck together. Whilst Blepharitis can be uncomfortable, it rarely causes serious eye damage. You can normally treat it by just taking care of your hygiene but you may need treatment. If you are concerned or have any questions, you should see your local optometrist.

2. Posterior Blepharitis which is caused when something affects your meibomian glands (which produce part of your tears)
