Another Solution

I have just purchased from the Optician on his recommendation Sterilid Eyelid Cleanser by Thera Tears I have used it for about a week and I am  finding it helpful  I had tried many of the other remedies here but did not feel confident as many are not meant to be used on the eyes  This has tree oil in it and has been made for eye-use. 

Can anyone suggest what can soften eyelashes the one eye I have bad blepharitis in my eyelashes are harder and stiffer than on the other eye and that seems to part of the problem as well.   Carol

    I don't know about softening eyelashes but suspect that it is not the lashes themselves that are the problem but what is happening from glands.

    Cleansing becomes so important!  I didn't take care of my eyes 4+ times a day and two days later.  This AM I am finding a little of the black I have read

    about.  

    Read the last posts of yesterday which were superb about cleansing and eye care.

    I haven't tried or heard of Ciadex (Others have mentioned it)  and I will ask my GP.  There's lots to follow up!)and do know that Tea Tree Oil is useful for eyes.  I have tried a drop of tea tree oil in a cup of water and it appeared helpful.  A small Boots store in the UK didn't have any other.  i am still using Blephasol for cleaning and have also started with cleaning with baby shampoo.  Try also to use the warm water pads with the tea tree oil.

    Do you know how you contracted this Blepharitis. Have you been around children, animals, hotels, motels that also have guests with dogs or other animals.  We just must find the cause and help others and ourselves.

    Is someone on this site good with computers and can draw up a survey.  I'm sure we all would help!

      That is one theory we need to be checking thoroughly.  You may be more susceptible or your friends symptoms have not appeared.  How long ago was the hotel visit? Perhaps a hotel towel or pillow may have been affected.  I think we need to keep this string alive and start adding up the apparent or possible causes.  How is your sclap...Itchy or any lumps or sores?  We've got to start somewhere!  How is your overall health?  It doesn't appear that age matters.

      Susan, I'm  willing to go along with anything to solve this problem of what initiated blepharitis.  To me though a trigger is not the cause.  You are right triggers are a good start. How do I read your post on triggers. Will other people be able to respond to the site?

      I don't know exactly what my new trigger is but it could be eye pencil of a few days ago. It could also be a new type of glow powder bought at Earl's Court.  This reminded me that when I was in the ME. there was make-up made from Dead Sea materials and I read a report that stated even though the Dead Sea was consdered dead it was not dead and there were tiny microscopic organisms living in it. We were told it was not best to use cosmetics.  Also in the Dead Sea we can see the moving areas of darker materials.  Then it brings me to what about the 'natural powders' or powders from nature which could contain something else.  

      So, then what are causes and what are triggers going back to my earlier post.  I know that I have extreme dry eye which makes dry rooms and climes making me more susceptible to any exacerbations.

      Other people may have other ideas of cause and of triggers.  Much to be looked at and surely some or al possibly known or even disqualified.  Can you help here?  That's why I though of some type of question and answer form.

      Thanks Susan

    Yes, I have used Sterilid every night for 3 years.  It does help, I guess, but I still have flare ups and they are still red and thickened.  Believe me, I have tried everything.  Maybe it will be more helpful for you.

    My opthamologist just said to try Cliradex....so trying to find other people who have used it also.  It's expensive.  I may try Sterilid eyelid cleanser.  Does it seem to be working for you?

      I too find Cliradex very strong....stings badly.  Haven't used it long enough to know if its working or not. Onlly been about a week.  Still crusty in the morning and I get the white strings too.  I will use Cliradex as they are expensive but if no better will try the Sterilid cleanser.  Does it come in cream or in a wipe ?
