... Hi all
I have discovered that a simple eye rinse solution that you can buy in stores works on blepharitis. Some days i use the warm compress and then the eye rinse. Other days I just rinse once or twice a day.

I no longer use the wet ones. ... (13 replies)

... Hi pauli
I did the wet ones and it made an improvement but did not work for me completely either. I think because the amount of benzethonium is variable on each cloth. an ointment would work better. My eye doc is trying to get one made at a pharmacy but that effort has not materialized yet.
In the meantime, i read on another message board that someone had success... (6 replies)

... Dear Sujeka,
I re-looked on my wet ones and they are 0.3% benzethonium chloride. Could hardly see the dot.

I'd love to be able to get back to a stage where I can at least tolerate... (13 replies)
