What are these crusty eye lesions?

A 6 year old girl presented with complaints of the red itchy left eye for 2 months associated with mild swelling of the eyelids. Unresponsive to topical antibiotics started 2 weeks before. Previous ocular and medical histories were unremarkable. Visual acuity was 1.0 in both eyes. Ocular motility and pupillary examinations were normal. Eyelid examination was remarkable for swollen lid margins and blood-stained thickened discharge on the eyelid margins of the left eye. High-magnification slit-lamp examination of the eyelids revealed the presence of tiny translucent oval nits at the base of the eyelashes and greyish crab-like insects that clung to the eyelashes. There was moderate conjunctival injection of the left eye. The right eye was normal. Fundus examination was normal in both eyes. What is diagnosis and management options?
