Eyelid Rim Red And Itchy
Blepharitis. Eye MD.: The most common cause of those symptoms is a blockage of the meibomian glands. Their job, when flowing normally is to create the outermost oily layer of the tear film which retards evaporation of the tears. At least 50% of people have some blockage of those glands. At the worst a chalazion or stye can form. Management consists of eyelash scrubs with q-tip and baby shampoo plus hot compresses. Read more
