I was diagnosed with blepharitis last year. Whilst listending to your video link, you mentioned something you can put on the lid to soften the infection and draw it out. Can you tell me what this is?
Also, I recenty had an eye test with Boots and was given script for reading and distance. I asked if this could be due to the blurred vision from the eye infection and was told he did not think so. I am unsure what to do. Persevere and try to get this under control or go with glasses. Possibly both. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Blepharitis does not normally affect your vision or prescription. The best advise and treatment for blepharitis I have seen is on the NHS website I have posted below. Lid wipes specifically designed for this condition can be helpful, and amoung the makes available are Blephaclean, Lumecare Eyelid-Wipes, Blephasol Lotion and Supranettes Sterile Eye-Cleaning Wipes. If you cannot find any in the pharamcy or opticians, they are readily available on the internet.
