Abstract: Demodex is considered to play a role in the pathogenesis of chronic blepharitis. Demodex was found in hair’s bulbs wich cause a loss of eyelashes, cylindrical dandruff and inflammatory processes. Demodex involvment in the pathogenesis of blepharitis is neglected by the physicians due to the large number of possible reasons for this disorder: bacterial infections, allergy, refractive errors wich are taken into account more often. Recently studies are showing that Demodex has a corelation with the presence of chronic blepharitis and with the severity of ocular surface disorders. The treatment with tea tree oil is an effective method to eliminate the mites.
Keywords: Demodex, blepharitis, tea tree oil, ocular surface.
