The condition requires a medical diagnosis and laboratory or imaging tests may be required.

Symptoms include redness and itching on the eyelids and skin that may look oily or form scabs. Blepharitis also causes lumps or stickiness around the eyes. Along with dry eye, blepharitis causes an imbalance in tear production. In general, this condition compromises the health of the ocular surface.
