About Chronic Eyelid and Eyelash Conditions
Millions of people suffer from chronic eye conditions caused by microorganisms that take up residence on eyelids and eyelashes, resulting in myriad afflictions including dry eye, MGD, blepharitis, demodex and eye allergies.
In particular, nearly 30 million Americans suffer from chronic blepharitis, a fairly common eye condition that causes irritation and inflammation of the eyelid margin where eyelashes join the eyelid. While normally a mild condition, if not properly treated, blepharitis can worsen to the point of negatively impacting one's vision. An equal opportunity affliction, it impacts both children and adult, men and women, and people of all ethnicities. One outcome of untreated blepharitis is the onset of meibomian gland dysfunction or what is commonly called MGD dry eye. Often accompanied by discomfort and loss of optimum vision, MGD affects the quality of the tear film.
A similar affliction is dry eye syndrome, which burdens over 100 million people worldwide. As a result of natural aging and modern living, risk of this disease increases 35% for each decade after a person reaches the age of 40. As people grow older, the production of oil in the body decreases, thus reducing tear production while increasing evaporation of tears, resulting in dryness of the eyes. This is further exasperated by increased time in front of a computer screen.
Finally, the eyelash mite, also known as demodex folliculitis, is a parasite found in the hair follicles of the face, particularly in the eyelash area. When mites build up to a high level, it can cause infection as well as loss of eyelashes. The situation can worsen by not washing the face before bed. It is estimated that 50% of Americans are afflicted with the eyelash mites due to sleeping with their eye makeup on.
