I swear every time I put warm wet (NOT HOT) compresses, my eyelids only get worse and more thick!! I'm so frustrated what do I do!! ?

Warm compress: If the warmth is frustrating you then use the ice route instead. Put a wet wash cloth in an ice bath and then squeeze out the access then refresh in 5 to 10 minutes. Your ice bath can be a pot or a large bowl with lots of ice. Settle down, this problem will pass. See the doctor in the am for appropriate antibiotics if not better. ...Read more

I swear every time I put warm wet (NOT HOT) compresses, my eyelids/meibomian glands only get worse and more thick!! I'm so frustrated what do I do!!

Hot compresses: Be patient. Sometimes the problem that you are treating is so chronic that the body (eyelid problem) has so much inflammation in it that even the proper treatment can aggravate the underlying inflammation.

Go a little slower for awhile or even skip 1 day and let your treatments allow the inflammation decrease on their own for 1-2 days, then resume but maybe use less pressure/rubbing (be gentle) ...Read more

A doctor told me that I had calcium deposites in my eye (underneath the eyelid) because I had a feeling of a strange body, could this be true?

I have blepharitis not that strong but very mild. Whenever I put hot compresses on my eyelids this thick oil covers my eye and I can't see anything?

I have blepharitis not that strong but very mild. Whenever I put hot compresses on my eyelids this thick oil covers my eye and I can't see anything?

Oil is good!: The tear film is made up of a balance between the aqueous (water), oil, and mucus. So, warm compresses allow the oil glands to open up, and keep the tear film on your eyes longer, to prevent against evaporation. Otherwise, you'll end up with styes. So, you are practicing good lid hygiene. Warm, not hot compresses are better for eyes, and more comfortable. You should see better using less heat. ...Read more
