Can Blepharitis and dry eye cause complications during pregnancy?

Q: My 28 years old wife has been diagnosed with Blepharitis and dry eye. How can these conditions be treated? Can it lead to any complication during pregnancy?

A:Blepharitis and dry eye are local eye disorders which can be treated with topical medicines. They will not be transmitted to the fetus unless there is a systemic association. You may consult your physician to rule out any systemic disorder which may have bearing on the pregnancy. Your examining eye specialist will be able to guide you regarding any blood tests that may be required depending on the severity of the eye problem.
