I had bletharitis last Winter, and the optician told me to purchase an eye bag, which was £20.00, (ouch!!) which I was then to heat in the microwave, (luckily I have one), for 30 secs, place over my eyes for ten minutes, then baith in optrex eye wash, each eye for a couple of minutes, then apply blethasol (I had to buy some from the optician direct as the chemist I usually go to didn't have it in stock and things were so bad I couldn't wait, so that cost me a further £9.00) with cotton buds quite generously then rub firmly and pinch the lids, this being the worst bit in my opinion as it hurt and was fiddly and awkward, but the whole process was tiresome given that you had to do it twice daily for a couple of months so obviously run out of optrex, a big bottle twice and blethasol in the only size they do, very tiresome but after two months it had gone so worth it really, except this year its back again so I'm once again treating it in the same way, delightfully enough I am now able to save £9.00 as the larger chemist I went to stocked the bletharitis, and of course you can't wear eye make up except i shall be on the 19th as I am appearing on you tube reciting my poems and its got to be done folks, this is just one persons story. i never had bletharitis until I turned 52 and I am outraged as it is unpleasant and as i have pointed out totally tedium itself to treat and seemingly recurring despite that fact, oh well.
