    yes, it may happen if you got blepharitis. Blepharitis is inflammation on the edge of the eyelid. It usually affects both eyes and causes irritation and redness, producing a gritty, burning or itching feeling in your eyes and blurred vision. Blepharitis usually can't be cured, but your symptoms can be controlled.

    Well, generally speaking, yes, blephariti can cause blurred vision. First, you should know that Blephariti is inflammation usually involving the part of the eyelid where the eyelashes grow. The eyes can eventually become red, irritated and itchy. And in some cases, Blephariti occurs when the small oil glands near the base of the eyelashes don't work properly, either because of a bacterial infection or some complication of a skin condition. And so it can also lead to blurred vision. So just be careful about it. Generally speaking, it is important for individuals to avoid touching eyes unless hands are clean. And then, you can put a damp, warm washcloth held over the infected eye a few times a day. In this way, it can help relieve swelling, itching and redness, and the blurred vision. Anyway, you should heal the blephariti first.

    Yes, the blurred vision can be caused by blepharitis which can be inflammed at the eyelid. However, you may get the blur vision at the same time because of the blepharitis. You could use some eye drops with anti inflammation to get rid of the coming bacterium. You will see the spots in the vision because of the inflammation. Thus, you'd better treat it as soon as possible.
