Blepharitis and Dry Eye
Patients who have blepharitis prior to eyelid surgery may have greater difficulty with dry eyes following the procedure.
Blepharitis and dry eyes
It is usually the other way around, meaning blepharitis can cause dry eyes. A course of Azasite can help with blepharitis as does performing warm moist compresses daily. There are also other treatments available. See an oculoplastic specialist.
