It takes time: Posterior blepharitis takes time to improve. The quality of the tear lake, which is composed of meibomian gland secretions (the part you are treating), mucin layer, ; aqueous layer, aides the ocular surface to be as clear ; smooth as possible. Use artificial tears like refresh™ tears to help with part of the blurry vision, but continue with the compresses/massages. Eye doc can also rx doxycycline.
