I'm glad that I've found this site, I didn't know there were so many people who suffer from blepharitis. I was diagnosed with it a couple of years ago after I had a bad eye infection. It's nasty, I have a constant feeling of grittiness in my eyes and really bad itching. Then I get blurry vision which is a real pain, some days I can't drive. It's so frustrating! If I manage to get the symptoms under control it does go away for a few months. But if it gets bad I feel like somebody has punched me in both eyes, and even the bathing techniques are painful. Why isn't more research being done into this condition? I read somewhere on a forum that a guy was told by a doctor, the reason for lack of research is because the symptom doesn't cause blindness. Pretty ridiculous really considering some of the advances of science. They can clone sheep, put man on the moon and create designer babies, but they can't help an eye condition, except to tell people to wash it with Johnsons baby shampoo!
