The researchers investigated how efficient eyelid massage would be in treating blepharitis, inflammation of the eyelid. They developed a specific protocol, taught 27 patients how to perform it, and followed up their progress over a one month period.

They reported that the results demonstrated an inexpensive, self-treatment which was safe, simple and effective.

The protocol included a specific method of eyelid massage, performed for specific time periods, while under a warm shower.
