Answer

Patients with blepharitis usually are started on treatment, and they are seen in 2-6 weeks for a follow-up examination. During this visit, an assessment of the clinical response to therapy is made. The physician should again emphasize the necessity for a prolonged and dedicated course of treatment to the patient. Encouragement and support is critical in helping patients  become committed to the course of treatment and to follow it. Additionally, the clinician is able to keep the focus on rigorous intervention by the patient, rather than accepting blame for not curing the condition.
