Self-Care at Home
Good eyelid care is usually sufficient for treatment. Until this condition is cleared, you should refrain from using eye makeup or wearing contact lenses Your lenses should be placed in a clean case with clean disinfectant solution. Daily eyelid care may be required after the initial episode has cleared.
Anytime that there is discharge from the lids, be careful to wash your hands often and not use other people's towels (or allow them to use yours). In most situations, there is minimal or no discharge, and the blepharitis is not contagious.
