Blepharitis is an extremely common, low-grade inflammatory condition of the eyelids. This can cause eye and eyelid irritation, dry eye symptoms, and crusting and redness of the eyelids. It is especially common in Caucasian people of European descent. Control of symptoms can be achieved with a daily routine of warm compresses, baby shampoo eyelid scrubs and possibly prescription medications. Dr. Brannan specializes in the medical management of eyelid abnormalities like these. Call 941-921-0400 today to schedule your appointment.
