As I understand MGD and DES can often be caused by blepharitis as it is in my case.
Blepharitis is assumed by doctors to be an incurable condition and if it is, so it will be the DES and MGD resulting from it.
But as far as I know blepharitis is only incurable when its cause is unknown as it is in most cases. It comes and goes and there is nothing we can do about it. But what happens when we know the element causing it and such element can be eliminated as in allergy-induced blepharitis?
I would think that whenever blepharitis is an a allergic reaction there is the possibility of making disappear by simply eliminating the element causing it.
Get rid of the blepharitis and say goodbye to the MGD and DES that were caused by it. So if blepharitis can be an allergic response in some cases as it can also be a response to certain medication we can stop using, why doesn't every eye doctor try to eliminate this as a possibility before assuming we're affected by blepharitis of unknown origin for which there is no cure?
Why send us home with eye drops for us to take for the rest of our lives when there may be a possibility of eliminating the need for us to use them?
