It was around Jan 2013 when i noticed i had a ton of pain in my eye. I had the crusting pain and everything and pain was a lot. I had it for few days and then waited until 1 full week where i decided to see an eye doctor. This was when i was told i had blepharitis.
During that week when i first got the pain and then for like the next 7 months, i couldn't really wear contacts because of the pain. However, i felt like my blepharitis was caused because the few days before that, i had the heat turned up really hot in my room it was like 90 degrees so i went to bed when it was like an oven in a room. Note it was the winter and very cold so i turned the heat on but couldn't turn it off and left it on for like 3 days or so. I couldnt turn the heat off and thats why.
I had thought this was the direct cause to it. Eye doctor said it could be because of infection, acne etc. I also had a pretty bad acne around that time and also had sebhorric dermatitis and i read thats a cause as well. The eye doctor said they didnt know what the actual cause was but said it could be any of these. First off, would any eye doctor actually know the direct cause or not? I assume its not possible?
A question that i really want to know is does blepharitis just develop overnight or over the cause of a few days? Because i really believe the direct cause was b/c of the heat in my bedroom and i went to sleep when it was really hot and that could have caused it. Or could this have been building for weeks or months and then i got the blepharitis? I worn contacts for 10 years and never had an issue and i dont believe contacts was the reason for this though i wear contacts all day and rarely wore glasses before i got blepharitis.
I love to know if anyone knows if someone can develop blepharitis due to overnight or over course of few days or its something that takes weeks or months for it to develop.
