Optician

Posted , 8 users are following.

I went to see my optician yesterday for a routine eye test, eyesight was fine, no change from two years ago.  I told her my blepharitis story, she said that she could see some slight evidence but nothing serious, a very different story to when I first saw my doc with big red swollen eyelids.  My self found treatment plan does work, for me at least.

      ....to shower every morning without fail and use a shampoo, trade name Capasal, available on prescription and off Amazon, to wash the hair and all round eye area with the suds.  Capasal is primarily used to treat seborrheic dermatitis - oily skin debris, blepharitis seems to be an infection of the eyelash follicles again due to debris (I think).  I know if I miss a shower I get the 'crusty lids'.  I presume you have this problem so please give it a try and let us know if it works for you, fingers crossed.

      I get the gritty stuff.  I;'ve tried a dozen things but still have the

      grit in my eyes after cleaning.  do you have grit.?    Goes the

      Capasal take it away? Do the directions on the Capasal say it

      is safe for the eyes?

      My reply contained a link and may be deemed as advertising, lets see if it comes through.  I just  searched on capasal in Amazon and it comes up top of the list at £10.99.

    Are you the one who said you use a 50/50% tea tree shampoo and water mix that you leave on your eyes overnight?

      Thats me. Tea Tree shampoo @ 50/50 with water, overnight. Works for me. ength of application matters more that product in a way. Is not cured, but is very mich relieved. I figure the soap left on will penetrate and any littel  bugs and work over night to clean debris. There is no stinging from soap.

      I tried this last night and slept much better and my eyes look a little better. My made mix 25% tea tree because I have very sensitive skin. I will try this for next few days and see how it goes. Thanks for taking the time to share!
