Red Eyelids, Dry Eyes, and Morning Eye Crusties

Ever wonder why our eyes look like this? Maybe its a late night, or maybe its Blepharitis.

Blepharitis is chronic inflammation around the lid area. This lid inflammation can cause your lids’ oil glands to function poorly, and thus contribute to a poor tear layer and dry eye.

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Keep your lids clean with Ocusoft over the counter lid scrubs once a day for a month.
  • Lubricate several times a day with SYSTANE® BALANCE Lubricant Eye Drops. These over the counter drops in particular have mineral oils that can supplement your own tears poor lipid component.
  • Start taking 2,000 mg of Omega-3 fish oils. They act as an anti-inflammatory and can improve your dry eye if taken diligently.

If your symptoms continue you need of course of prescription medication to clear it up.
