... Hi xandrr - I am so sorry to hear that your blepharitis/mgd came back. That's very frustrating. At least you were able to have a few months where your eyes felt pretty good, so that is hopefull. I'm still on a very low dose of doxycycline (50mg/day) and I've been able to keep the symptoms at bay so far. I'm just wondering what will happen when I go off the antibiotics, too. My... (2 replies)
... Have any of you out there had mgd blepharitis and got it under control (via warm compresses, etc) and then had it come back after a period of nice (low level) symptoms.

... estly don't know the answer to your question. For me, there is a very gray line between posterior bleph and MGD. I don't really know the difference. I thought MGD caused posterior bleph. I do think that there is a bacterial component to the bleph which is why, for me at least, scrubs seem to help some. ... (3 replies)

How can you distinguish between MGD and posterior blepharitis symptoms (besides the presence of oil orfices?). If my lids are sometimes sticky, does that indicate bacterial posterior bleph? If so, what is the best srub/ cleanser for posterior? is johnson's baby shampoo sufficient? is it possible to rid of bacterial posterior bleph?

... My eyes have been slightly dry for a while. I want to blame LASIKS (July 2007), but I think it started before that when I could no longer wear my contacts. As of 6 months ago they got extremely dry. I didn't know what was going on, they felt like someone turned off the faucet to my eyes. I went to 5 different doctors. Some said I had nothing wrong and my eyes looked healthy.... (0 replies)
... Hi, I'm just going to try to keep it quick.
For the past few months, the eye doctors have said I have blepharitis/mgd. I would get some burning and stinging and my lids would hurt or feel really sore at times. But other times, they feel fine like nothing is wrong. However, my lashes are in kinda bad shape though and falling out easily. But even when i do have the symptoms,... (0 replies)

Thanks for your reference to my posting.
I've tried most stuff and all except bicarbonate of soda or salt are irritants.
I was interested to read of the bumps (was it) on the eyelids. The tear ducts to which you refer are near the inner corner of your eye top and bottom near nose and there is one only on the top and bottom.
If you have bumps along the... (5 replies)
... This condition crept up on me over a couple of years until after two episodes of marginal keratitis due to the dryness of my eyes I finally realised I had to accept I have blepharitis/MGD.
I recently went back into the A and E unit as both my eyes were blood red and I was told a viral conjunctivitis, but it started to clear within a few days with no medication having been... (0 replies)

I am also a guy suffering from MGD. Did you get around to trying the "light therapy"? I am curious but have just recently heard about it. I have finally managed to stabilize my problems but I still get regular flare ups. What works best for me now is a combination of heat compress (once a day), dry eye spray (3 times a day), eye drops (3 times a day), eye scrub with... (37 replies)

... I just got back from the opthamologist. (Once again...lol). You know, it took me a LONG time, but I think I finally figured out it was my house that created this problem with my eyes. I was told I have blepharitis, but didn't realize it was probably caused by ALLERGIES. I am allergic to dust and mold, and I've had nothing but trouble with inflammation and dry eyes. I have...

... Hi Mike - I don't suffer any symptoms of MGD, blepharitis, or ocular rosacea anymore. Everthing's back to normal now. My eyes don't even feel dry - a miracle! And at my last visit to my ophthalmologist, he couldn't find any signs of inflammation. It was a long, hard battle to get where I am today. I'm still dealing with some of the emotional scars from all this, though. It has... (5 replies)
