Question not clear.: If you are asking for a blepharitis treatment, the effective ones are by prescription, so you will need to see your doctor. (any treatment involving your eyes should be supervised by a doctor anyway.) as for "treatment/medicine for daytime", what are you treating? If you mean the same blepharitis, the same answer applies.

Blepharitis: The correct treatment for blepharitis includes cleaning your lids and lashes at bedtime, followed by an antibiotic gel or ointment. This should be done for 2-3 weeks initially to reduce your morning symptoms, then used as needed afterwards. There are several brands of antibiotic gels. Talk to your eye doctor. In addition, patients often also have dry eyes. Use artificial tears during the day.
