Abstract

Blepharitis is an acute or chronic inflammatory process involving the eyelids that is frequently associated with conjunctivitis. In its many clinical forms, blepharitis is one of the most common diseases seen by ophthalmologists; yet it remains a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. This article reviews the clinical presentation, classification, diagnosis, etiology and pathogenesis, and treatment of blepharitis.
