Blepharitis is a very common inflammation of the eyelids, usually caused by a blockage of the meibomian glands. This uncomfortable condition is usually chronic and can develop due to a variety of factors, including an imbalance in the bacteria of the lids.
Regardless of the cause, eyelid hygiene can help prevent and treat blepharitis. Be sure to wash your eyelids and upper and lower lash lines every day with warm water and diluted baby shampoo or eyelid cleansers.
Blepharitis and dry eye have sort of a “chicken-or-the-egg” situation going on. Doctors can’t seem to agree whether dry eye causes blepharitis, or blepharitis causes dry eye. In any case, it’s clear that the two are closely related.
Evaporative dry eye occurs when the meibomian glands are blocked, preventing them from creating a proper tear film. This type of blockage (meibomian gland dysfunction or MGD) is also closely related to blepharitis, causing a crusty buildup at the base of the eyelashes.
We offer a wide variety of blepharitis treatments, including LipiFlow Thermal Pulsation; a highly advanced treatment also used to treat dry eye.

All the rave reviews about this place are spot on. Absolutely top notch customer service, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere. I never thought I’d ever enjoy going to the Optometrist this much.
All the staff were excellent at ensuring everything was explained well and with utmost professionalism and courtesy. Every detail of my entire visit was smooth and efficient.
Tried out See & Be Seen after seeing some great reviews online, and they most definitely lived up to the hype! Easy to get to location in Liberty Village, very cool shop interior, great range of eyewear, and an awesome bunch of staff to boot! Their customer service was top notch from the minute I booked my appointment, right up until walking out the door with some fresh new glasses.
This was my first in-depth eye exam, and Dr. Patel and his team make the process very easy and interesting to help you understand all about the health of your eyes. If you’re considering getting a check-up or in need of new glasses, 100% pick See & Be Seen.
I can’t even begin to express my love and admiration for the team at See & Be Seen Eyecare. Incredible, above and beyond service. Exceptionally friendly and they IMMEDIATELY made me feel like family. Dr. Patel blew me with his friendly and helpful personality and the staff are just so bubbly and accommodating. I feel seriously blessed to have found this team. Thank you!!
The best Optometrist I have ever seen, the entire staff is extremely warm and welcoming. They use high quality lenses, and cary the best fashions for frames. The atmosphere is also warm and welcoming unlike other old fashioned stark white clinics. 100% would recommend and visit again! Plus cool eyeball pictures!
Unreal!!!! You need to go here!!! Best service and professionalism I have ever had! The entire experience was amazing from start to finish!!! I came across the city for this office due to the amazing reviews on Yelp and I could not be more thankful for social media because I would have never found this gem without it!!! Thanks Dr. Patel and staff!!!! My eyes will never be the same!!
I went to See & Be Seen by chance the first time around. I was thrilled with the level of customer service I received and the welcoming staff. From the wonderful receptionist who immediately made me feel like a friend to Dr. Patel who is very caring to the assistance i received in finding the best glasses possible. I couldn’t imagine having a better experience.
