BlephEx: Keeping Your Eyelids Healthy
A condition commonly associated with dry eye symptoms is blepharitis, an issue that can cause inflammation in your eyelids. Alongside common dry eye symptoms, it can also cause crusty, dandruff-like skin flakes on the edges of your eyelid.
It typically develops when there is too much bacteria on the edges of your eyelids, or if you have meibomian gland dysfunction. To help address these symptoms, our team can offer BlephEx treatments to help clean the edges of your eyelid and remove bacteria.
How Does BlephEx Work?
BlephEx is an in-office treatment that uses a small spinning sponge to gently clean and exfoliate your eyelids. In just a few minutes, BlephEx technology can remove bacteria from your eyelids and promote healthy tear production.
Does BlephEx Hurt?
Some patients experience a slight tickling sensation during their BlephEx treatment, but we can place a numbing drop into each eye to help provide you with additional comfort.
Is BlephEx Right for Me?
Before we can recommend BlephEx treatments, we will need to examine your eyes and determine the cause of your discomfort. In some cases, we may recommend BlephEx treatments alongside eyelid hygiene routines at home to help keep your eyes healthy and comfortable.
For some patients, we may recommend routine BlephEx treatments to help maintain your eye comfort while living with chronic dry eye.
