What are the common symptoms of blepharitis?
Blepharitis can cause a range of symptoms, including sore eyelids, itchy eyes, a gritty feeling in the eyes, flakes or crusts around the roots of the eyelashes, and eyelids sticking together in the morning when you wake up. These symptoms often come and go, and may be more pronounced at certain times, such as during periods of stress or illness.
What are the common causes of blepharitis?
Blepharitis can be caused by several factors, including the presence of bacteria on the skin, certain skin conditions like seborrhoeic dermatitis, and insufficient production of oil by the glands inside the eyelids. It's important to note that blepharitis is not contagious and cannot be transmitted to other people. Effective treatment options can include good eyelid hygiene, warm compresses, and prescription medications.

Usage and Instructions
How often can I use Blephagel?
Blephagel can be applied morning and evening, or as often as necessary, and can be left on overnight and wiped off in the morning.
How do I apply Blephagel?
To apply Blephagel, a dose should be pumped onto a cotton wool pad, and half should be transferred to a second pad to create a separate pad for each eye. The pads should then be used to gently wipe the eyelid/lash root area of each eye in small circular motions. Any leftover Blephagel should be removed with a clean pad.
Blephagel can be used by all contact lens wearers.
The gel remains sterile up to 2 months after opening.
