An estimated one in six people is now affected by blepharitis  – an uncomfortable and potentially sight-threatening condition characterised by crusty deposits around the lashes, gritty and painful eyes and irritation around the eyelids. Yet a survey for Bausch + Lomb shows many people in the UK are unaware of the condition and its risks. Only 26 per cent were aware of blepharitis and 40 per cent had no idea how to manage it. The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) advises applying a warm compress to the closed eyelids for five to 10 minutes. Bausch + Lomb’s solution is Therapearl Eye-ssential Mask, a reusable eye mask which delivers consistent and comfortable heat, without the risk of hotspots or heat loss.
