Do you have inflamed, dry eyes? Do you suffer from burning, tearing, or itching? If any of these symptoms sound familiar, you may have a common eyelid inflammation known as blepharitis. Introducing BlephEx™, a new, in-office procedure that allows physicians to take an active role in treating blepharitis.
What is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis is extremely common – many patients suffer from some type of blepharitis symptoms, including burning, crusting, itching, redness, tearing, and overall discomfort. Blepharitis has two basic forms, being anterior blepharitis (affecting the outside of the eyelid at the eyelashes) or posterior blepharitis (affecting the interior of the eyelids where oils are secreted to help lubricate the eyes). Often individuals have a combination of both anterior and posterior forms of blepharitis simultaneously.
How does BlephEx™ Work?
BlephEx™ is a simple, non-invasive procedure that reduces bacterial fragments by exfoliating the eyelids. This is done by precisely spinning a medical-grade micro-sponge along the edges of your eyelids to clean them and clear any debris. Because bacteria is the main source of inflammatory lid disease, this procedure promotes the overall health of your eyes. It only takes a few minutes to complete and can save you a significant amount of money in the long run in the costs of artificial tears and prescriptions.
Life After BlephEx™
Afterward the quick BlephEx™ procedure, patients will often experience an immediate decline of their symptoms. This is the first procedure of it’s kind to truly cure the symptoms of blepharitis once and for all and is often met with joy from patients who have suffered from irritation and eye rubbing for years.
