Yesterday I was told I DO NOT have blepharitis. I was misdiagnosed with it by 4 eye specialists and 6 optometrist before I went and seen the best of the best to be told I absolutely do not have it. My Crohn's disease is in fact causing my eye to be inflamed. Hence being on the FODMAP diet is the best option and is working! In just a week I have seen significant changes and improvement.
The specialist I seen yesterday also told me that all of the eye drops, steroids, lid wipes, hot compresses etc, have just flared the eye and eye lid up even more as they eye doesn't take well to misused products and it causes further issues and sometimes long term or unreversable issues. Please be careful with your "bleph". Make sure you get many opinions as I did and spend the money to see the biggest and best specialist you can. I have now wasted over $6,000 over the last 11 months on this thinking I had bleph when all it was, was simply the need to change my diet and my tablets that I take for my crohns!
Please be careful!!!!!! Just because it looks like bleph doesn't mean it is!
Also be sure to see a Dermatoligist before accepting you have Bleph as this specilaist told me there are several skin conditions that happen around the eye, eye lids and lashes that are misdiagnosed for Bleph, when it is simply a cureable skin cond.
