08 Jul Sore, Itchy Eyes ?
Sore , itchy eyes, if this is you then we should be able to help
It could be that you are suffering from the condition called blepharitis in which the eyelids become inflamed. Your eyes can feel sore and stingy ,also sometimes the lids and eyelashes can be red and crusty or sticky in the mornings.
If you suffer from any of these symptoms we can offer you some help but not always a permanent cure.
Warm compresses can really help and we recommend an ” eye bag ” which can be put into the microwave , heated up and placed on the eyes . This is used for about ten minutes and can help to loosen the crusts or any secretions which can then be cleaned away with lid wipes.
There are also lubricants and ointments that we can recommend which help to make the eyes feel much more comfortable, these can be used during the day and a gel to use overnight.
The best way to manage this condition is to have an ongoing maintenance regime that will help to keep your eyes feeling comfortable for the majority of the day.
