    Very interesting article. Blepharitis picked up on a check up at optician, followed by scraping of lids (very tickly) and then I had to use a warm compress daily, massage my eyes and use some prescribed wipes. Also take a fish oil supplement. Will try the bicarb wash and maybe the manuka honey one, too. Thanks
