I've just been diagnosed with this blepharitis.  Is it safe to fly with this condition?

    Unless your planning to have the Windows open on the plane I cant see what would be the problem? If you going somewhere hot and humid it should work wonders for your condition. My blephartis symptoms all but vanish once I'm in a hot country.

      Andy, do you have severe dry eye with your bleph. I was almost resigned to the fact I may never fly again cos of the intensive air con on the flight, not to mention the airport itself. If I even come in contact with an air con vent in a deparment store Ive to literally run a mile. You have given me hope.....

      Dry eyes is the only symptoms I get with my blep, I've got mgd type blep, no crusting or anything, I get redness and dry eye but it's well under control due to the twizzer type instrument to clear my glands and I only do hot compressers under the shower. I go Thailand alot and my symptoms completely go every time and I have the air con on all night.. I do also take quality high content omega 3s too.. don't ever buy the cheap c*** off ebay.

      Thats very interesting Andy, mine was caused by Demodex infestation due to a weakened immune system. I found that the sunny warm days last summer seemed to aggrivate the eyes but I feel more optimistic from reading your post. Im takn flaxi capsules plus omega 7 seabuckthorn oil and yesterday my order of Lagad Lacrima capsules arrived so Im giving them a try, they are suppose to get the lacrimal glands functioning again.

    My liberation from eye drynes came with the  wet goggles recommended by my eye doctor. But other symptoms stayed
