    Often this is due to insufficient amounts of natural lube on the eyeball surface .Without the regular amount needed always being present the eyeball is unprotected and very light sensitive and feels strained . Suffering at present .

    Hi Susan, the only time I've had this symptom I was diagnosed with a deep eye infection on top of the blepharitis. I had two months of antibiotics during which time my eyes were extremely sensitive to environmental conditions including light, breezes etc. Once the course of treatment ended it was a couple of weeks before my eyes and eyelids returned to normal. Another aspect was allergens carried in the air.

    As a general routine I shampoo my eyes night and morning with johnsons baby shampoo (straight from the bottle as advised by my doctor), followed by 10 minutes of heat treatment with a blepharitis mask, I then wipe them again with wet wipes before putting in eye drops for dry eyes. If my eyes are uncomfortable during the day I use wet wipes.  I continue with this even when I am not in a blepharitis episode as it keeps the condition at bay. It's also vital for MGD which is a part of blepharitis.

    i researched medical studies re blepharitis and came across a trial on the effect of high doses of omega 3 fish oil, 6000mg per day, and was impressed so tried it. It has made a noticeable and significant difference and I am generally in complete control of my blepharitis condition. I also take a very strong antihistamine daily all year round. 

    I d wear eye make up when I feel my eyes can take it, generally for special occasions.

    Sorry this his reply is so long. It's taken a couple of years to get my blepharitis under control but that's no time at all compared to others. Blepharitis seems to affect every one differently.

    Good luck, hope you find answers very soon. All the best, Pamela

    Hi again Susan, I've just come across this hilts reading further entries in this forum:

    Keratitis (corneal inflammation) ± ulceration. Symptoms of a foreign body sensation, pain, a red eye and photophobia would lead you to suspect this and should prompt referral for further assessment.

    bye for now

    Hi Susan, yes, in time it will lessen and you will find your own way to control the symptoms. 

    when my eyelids were very greasy I checked out eye makeup for greasy eyelids and apparently a cream eye shadow is recommended. I bought a tube and it works well. It's not like the old fashioned cream eye shadows.

    It's No 7 Stay Perfect Smoothing Eye Shadow. No.7 is all hypoallergenic. I use a neutral shade which seems to be a good foundation for powdered eye shadow on top. It dries on application and the powder eyeshadow doesn't clog in creases. I use eye make up only when I feel I can get away with it. I wouldn't if I had need to wipe my eyes with wet ones any time during the day. It's worth a try anyway. If it doesn't work for you don't lose heart. You will eventually find your formula for eye comfort and eye makeup, at least it's important you keep hoping and trying. Good luck.

    No food types seem to affect me really. I don't have problems with candida. I eat a normal diet with meat, fish and lots of varied vegetables. I keep bread intake low as I find it bloats me out. Alcohol intake is moderate mainly because I need to do my eye routine before going to bed lol
