Blepharitis and vision.

Posted , 4 users are following.

i have had BLEPHARITIS for nearly two years and tried many treatments. Also followed the forum for advice. Recently I have been not so red eyed by having a good thorough cleaning routine. Eyes drops, blephargeL and wet wipes morning and night.  Some days my vision is very blurry. During a recent eye test it showed my vision had NOT deteriation. However some days are difficult with bluriness , shadows around objects and light sensitive.

on my last consultant visit I asked him about the blurriness

He pressed my eyeball till it hurt and said you have a lot of gel in your eye and must massage it in more. So now I add heat pads and massage to my daily routine. My vision concerns me.

does any one else experience this?

also recently someone posted about low dosage anti biotics long term as a treatment. Has anyone on the forum had this and  experienced success?

    I lost some vision after blepharitissymtomps show up. The doctor says that lost vision should come back to you once you take care of symptoms but my vision does not seem to come back.

    Does anyone have the same experience?
