If you suffer from one or more of the following symptoms, you may be suffering from blepharitis:
- Itchy eyes
- Foreign body sensation
- Dry Eyes
- Eye Rubbing
Blephex is a painless procedure performed by your optometrist, in which a revolutionary hand piece is used to precisely and carefully spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids.
This treatment allows the optometrist to precisely and safely clean and exfoliate your eyelids, almost immediately improving symptoms of blepharitis. By completely removing the exotoxin-laden biofilm along the lid margin, our optometrist can help you avoid the long-term inflammatory damage to your tear glands and prevent chronic dry eye syndrome.
After the procedure, you will be instructed by your optometrist on how best to maintain your clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. The blephex procedure is usually repeated every six months.
