Blepharitis - External and Internal Eye
Patients with chronic skin conditions such as rosacea, seborrheic dermatitis, and psoriasis are particularly prone to suffer from blepharitis. There are a number of causes of blepharitis in addition to the systemic skin conditions noted above, including meibomian gland dysfunction (meibomitis) and staphylococcal infection as well as infestation with Demodex mites (demodicosis).
Very severe blepharitis and associated dry eye can lead to ocular surface dysfunction and resultant progressive corneal and conjunctival scarring with peripheral vascularization of the cornea.
