Blepharitis Eye Disorder Causes, Symptoms, and Treatments

Blepharitis means inflammation of the eyelid margins, or edges where the eyelashes grow. This condition is one of the most common causes of eye irritation. Blepharitis can result from bacterial infection, abnormal oil gland secretions, or a combination of both. In bacterial blepharitis, certain bacteria live in the eyelids and cause irritation.
