BlephEx

Are you often troubled by redness, irritation, or flakiness in your eyelids? You may have an eye disorder known as blepharitis. This common problem leads to inflammation of the eyelids and can cause symptoms such as swollen, itchy, flaky eyes, as well as dry eye syndrome. BlephEx is the first and only professional eyelid cleaning procedure to help maintain clean and healthy lids. This in-office eye treatment has been proven to provide long-lasting relief from blepharitis and dry eye. This procedure effectively removes years of accumulated bacterial biofilm, much like a dental cleaning removes accumulated plaque, also a biofilm. Once the biofilm is removed, your eyelids are cleaner and healthier. A healthy eyelid is critical for normal tear production.

How It Works

A revolutionary new patented BlephEx handpiece is used to very 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. The patented micro-sponge is disposable and a clean one is used for each individual eyelid so bacteria is not spread between the lids. The eyes are rinsed well afterward.

The procedure lasts about 6 -8 minutes and is well tolerated. Most patients simply report a tickling sensation. A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort. After the procedure, the patient is instructed on how to maintain their clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. Since home treatments are only semi-effective, the procedure is typically repeated at 4-6 month intervals.
