Blepharitis

An opthalmologist told me I have Blepharitis. I'm using the ointment and cleaning my eyelids as instructed, but he is also insisting that I wear glasses (my power is 0.25). 1. Are glasses necessary to fix this issue? 2. Is this a chronic issue, or is there hope to fix this permanently?

Hi.... There is no one-off cure for blepharitis, as the inflammation tends to recur if you do not keep up with treatment. However, with regular treatment, symptoms can usually be eased and then kept to a minimum. This helps to prevent flare-ups. The aim of treatment is to control or manage blepharitis, not to cure it. Most of the treatment is done by you, rather than having prescriptions or treatments from your doctor. The main treatment is regular eyelid hygiene ....
