What causes blepharitis?

Eileen  asked the Naked Scientists:
Hello Chris

I listen to your porgramme on Radio 702 every Friday, which I thoroughly enjoy, but have been unable to get through by phone as I guess the lines are very busy.

Please can you help me?

I have been diagnosed with an eye problem called Blepharitis, which I am told is made up of mites etc., which to me sounds horrific!  How does one get such a thing?

Question is, how do you treat this problem as it is very irritating.  I have been putting 20% Tea Tree Oil on my eyelids, but unfortunately this procedure makes my eyes sting for ages. 

Do you have any answers?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Eileen Ellis
