My right eye started to get uncomfortable when I blinked. It felt like something underneath the lid....but not the usual dry eye foreign body thing. I also noticed a bump on my upper eye lid. So, I went to the doc who tells me I have several blocked oil glands.
Now this surprises me. I never had this before, and I do the warm compresses/massages every morning. Religiously. And sometimes in the evening, too.
Why would they be getting blocked? About all the doc could say was to do the compresses/massages more often and really work the upper lid. She mentioned doxy if it didn't clear up, but I hesitate to take this as I get other problems with such drugs.
And if you do use the doxy, will using it only for a couple weeks really help? Or will they continue to get blocked?
My eyes look good, no crud, lashes look fine. My doc did say that she has all of a sudden seen several people in the last couple weeks with this problem. She wondered if it was allergy related or seasonal???
