BlepharitisEyelash: An eyelash or simply lash is one of the hairs that grows at the edge of the eyelid. Eyelashes protect the eye from debris and perform some of the same function as whiskers do on a cat or a mouse in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that an object (such as an insect or dust mite) is near the eye (which then closes reflexively).Meibomian gland: The meibomian glands (or tarsal glands) are a special kind of sebaceous gland at the rim of the eyelids inside the tarsal plate, responsible for the supply of meibum, an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film. Meibum prevents tear spillage onto the cheek, trapping tears between the oiled edge and the eyeball, and makes the closed lids airtight.AcariasisBlepharochalasisHay–Wells syndromeKeratoconjunctivitisOcular rosacea: Ocular rosacea is a manifestation of rosacea that affects the eyes and eyelids.

It is generally a systemic disease which may involve the periodontal tissue, the upper and lower respiratory tract, kidneys, middle ear, and female genitalia.Trimethoprim/polymyxinOxytetracyclineMalassezia: Malassezia (formerly known as Pityrosporum) is a genus of fungi.
