I have blepharitis, diagnosed at Morefields eye hospital London and confirmed at Westfields eye hospital London. I went for a second opinion because I couldn't believe this could cause so much burning pain behind one eye while neither eye showing no redness or gunk. Stress head ache above it, I'm sure.

My eyes are clean and infection free, I've had a month of anti biotics and follow a wonderful cleaning routine, have tiny lumps of blocked oil in my eyelids but my left eye still hurts all around especially behind it. The eye pain is worse during the night. Is this normal? Is this really blepharitis?

Hi, I was diagnosed with blepharitis about four weeks ago. Prior to that five specialists could find nothing wrong with me and made me feel like the pain was all in my head. I have been advised not to think about it. I am on Restasis, but it does not appear to be working. Perhaps, the worst $400 spent. Has anyone found someone who can offer some relief from this horribly uncomfortable problem?

Hi Chris and welcome to HealingWell. My husband has this condition and I can only tell you what he does and what I know about this.

He saw an ophthalmologist first of all. This is an eye specialist who knows more about the health of eyes than a family doctor. If there are bumps on the eye lids among the eyelashes, they might be infected and you would be prescribed a topical antibiotic like Gentak, specially made for eyes. It's also the same as used for styes. If there is no infection, then, you would simply be instructed to cleanse your eyelids along the eyelashes twice a day. There are special medicated pads for this called OCuSOFT but these are really expensive if you have to use them everyday. You can buy these over the counter but the doctor told my husband he can just as well use baby shampoo on a clean wet face cloth to gently clean the eyelash area and then rinse twice daily. This is what he does now and the condition seems to be ok.

If you haven't seen an ophthalmologist, please go see one. Good luck and I hope you get better.
