I've been suffering from dry eyes for a while, especially when I get tired, but a few weeks back I started getting swelling around my left eye. It was also slightly closed.
I got referred to the eye clinic where they diagnosed blepharitis (they'd not noticed it on several previous visits to have my eyes checked for possible glaucoma - luckily I don't have that). I was given a leaflet on cleaning my eyes and asked to come back in April.
This week I am doing my first set of nights since it flared up and, despite cleaning every few hours, my eye feels permanently "gritty" and blurry. I can get temporary relief by using eye drops but it comes back.
Is it normal/usual for it to get worse when tired ?
Also my eye is quite bloodshot, could that be a result of cleaning my eyes a bit too vigorously or could it be something more sinister ?
