I'm a long term blepharitis sufferer, from as early as I can remember (now 29).
I've tried the hot compressing over the years on and off but usually don't bother having seen minimal results.
I stumbled across a treatment called "blephex" a few days ago. Videos of the procedure can be found on youtube but it basically uses an electric device similar to a toothbrush across the eyelids to remove the debris/ bacteria.
I'm surprised not to see a thread on this already?!
This afternoon i attended an appointment to undergo the procedure. It was painless (tickled a little) and took around 20mins. The eyelids are still red / swollen but feel as fresh as I can remember.
Hopefully the redness reduces over time too but regardless I would definitely recommend looking into this treatment. It cost me £59 but I imagine the cost will vary depending on the clinic you book through.
Hope this helps
