Your eyes may start to water, and many patients find that they are more sensitive to light. Your eyes, or your eyelids, may be swollen or turn red. You may have tears that are foamy or have little bubbles. Blepharitis can lead to patients having dry eyes. It can also result in mucus coming from your eyes and causing crusty eyelids in the morning. Some more serious symptoms may develop in patients. These include blurred vision, losing the eyelashes, and having corneas that get swollen. It's also possible for the eyelashes to start growing in an incorrect direction.
