I suffer with Blepharitis which is an external eye issue. Is this a “just me” thing and unrelated to MS, or do others get it?
The eyelids have oil ducts which can get clogged up and crusty, leaving the eyes dry, itch and prone to infection. It is also known as MGD (Meibomian gland dysfunction) and is a nuisance more than anything. It causes blurring and foggy vision, though when properly washed / cleaned, I can see fine. It’s very disconcerting to someone relatively new to MS and who has heard all about potential vision problems connected with the disease.
My own theory is that I’m susceptible because of my poor sleep patterns, due either to back pain or a weak bladder, meaning that I’m missing out on REM sleep.
