MANAGING DRY EYE AND BLEPHARITIS

Dry eye is a common chronic condition that is estimated to affect up to 33% of the worldwide adult population.1 The prevalence of the condition increases with age and approximately 1 in 3 people aged over 65 are affected.2 There is a link between dry eye and blepharitis (which affects the eyelids), as the glands in the eyelid play a role in effective tear formation, and many people with blepharitis also develop dry eye symptoms.
