Diagnosis of blepharitis

Blepharitis can be diagnosed by your GP through an examination of the eyelids and by asking questions about your symptoms. Your GP may also check for any associated medical conditions.

If your symptoms are particularly severe or if the condition is interfering with your vision, your GP may refer you to an ophthalmologist



Blepharitis is generally not a serious condition and complications are rare. Occasionally, however, blepharitis may result in the following:

  • Dry eye syndrome.
  • Painless cysts on the upper eyelid known as chalazia. These are caused by blocked meibomian glands
  • Styes, which are small painful swellings on the outside of the eyelids
  • Loss of eyelashes or eyelashes which grow towards the eye
  • Conjunctivitis
