Eye Infections and Treatment
Common Eye Infections
Inflammation and infections of the eyelid that affects the eyelashes and/or tear production are called Blepharitis. Symptoms of blepharitis include white, flaky debris present on the eyelids, itching and sometimes redness. Most commonly, a bacterial infection of the eyelid causes blepharitis, but sometimes microscopic mites are to blame.
