If you visit a doctor for dry eye, stye, blepharitis, or chalazion, what do they always recommend you do?
Apply a warm compress? Use a heated eye pad? Use a heated eye mask?
Dry eye syndrome (DES), or Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), also called keratitis sicca, or xerophthalmia is an eye disease caused by eye dryness, which, in turn, is caused by either decreased tear production or increased tear film evaporation.
An external stye, or hordeolum, is an infection of the sebaceous glands of Zeis at the base of the eyelashes, or an infection of the apocrine sweat glands of Moll. Internal styes are infections of the meibomian sebaceous glands lining the inside of the eyelids
Blepharitis is an eye condition characterized by chronic inflammation of the eyelid, the severity and time course of which can vary. It may be classified as seborrhoeic, staphylococcal, or meiobomitis, or parasitic.
A chalazion, also known as a meibomian gland lipogranuloma, is a cyst in the eyelid that is caused by inflammation of a blocked meibomian gland, usually on the upper eyelid. Chalazia differ from styes (hordeola) in that they are subacute and usually painless nodules.
