Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Eyelid and eyelid margin abnormalities represent some of the commonest
conditions presenting to optometric and ophthalmological practices. This
article includes a general consideration of the aetiology and demographics
of these conditions and patient assessment. The interventions that can be
undertaken are considered along with the legislation relevant to eyelid
hygiene products and general-purpose anti-infective agents; consideration is
also given to product ingredients, indicated uses and follow-up guidelines. A
brief consideration is also given to the use of topical or oral anti-inflammatory
drugs by optometrists trained to independent prescriber (IP) level.
