I have posted the following on another thread
I really know what you have been going thru , I have had blepharitis bouts for the last 3 years , always in right eye and always ending up with the same result.
Basically my eye becomes red and swollen over about 3 days , i generally refuse to accept that it is happening again , i then head off to my opthalmologist (he is the number eye doctor in Australia) and Chairperson of the Eye Association , so I feel like im in good hands.
I generally go on Flarex drops for 10 days my eye clears , it then deterioates into a stye forming and around 2 months later , i go into surgery for a general anaethestic and have the stye removed.
I sometimes feel that i have no more areas on my lids for stys to form , i have had around 4 removed.
As i sit here and type i am now going thru the cycle again 2nd day on Flarex and probably a stye and operation to look forward to.
Im am a 45 year old male in very good health and live in Australia.
I have tried everything possible and every recommendation that has ever been offered to me but still it comes back. Every remedy on the internet I have tried , whilst it may work for some people , it may not work for others
Whilst scouring the internet last month , I made contact with a Professor Stephanie Watson from the Sydney University. She is developing a drop that will actually treat the inflammation but also treat the blepharitis , this will be a world first for blepharitis sufferers as all drops only treat the symptons and not the cause.
Not too sure how long it will be , they completed stage one trials last year and as most universities around they world they are waiting on further funding before they can commence stage 2 clinical trials. Apparently the early trials are nothing but sensational
I will keep everyone posted and for all blepharitis sufferers I truly understand and appreciate what you are going thru and all i can say is that whilst we would all like to wake up in the morning have normal eyes , i always put it into perspective that there alot of people around the world that have far more serious problems to deal with than my blepharitis
