One of the hottest topics in optometry is Demodex. Demodex is a hair follicle mite that causes ocular irritation, itching and scaling of the lids. Past ocular history may include failed treatment of blepharitis.
Chronic blepharitis is one of the most common diseases of the eyelids and it’s not very well understood. The appearance of “cylindrical dandruff” may be associated with Demodex infestation and is often misdiagnosed. Clinical signs my include conjunctival inflammation and meibomian gland dysfunction.
