Blepharitis is a common eyelid condition that can lead to symptoms ranging from burning, itching, flaking, eyelid discharge, eyelid redness, and the occurrence of frequent “pink eye” like flare ups. The eyelids, which act as the critical windshield wipers of the tear film, are complex structures that can frequently get inflamed and develop bacterial overgrowth. Maintaining a health eyelid margin involves usually involves at home applications of heat, lid wipes, and cleansing. Sometimes this treatment is not enough and difficult to maintain daily.
With Blephex, our staff is able to perform a very efficient, thorough, and lasting cleaning of the eyelid margin with lasting effect. Medically known as MicroBlepharoExfoliation, this 15 minute in office treatment allows for a rapid restoration of the healthy lid surface. Typically, Blephex is repeated at a scheduled interval of 3-4 months, providing for lasting relief. Commonly Blephex is combined with Lipiflow.
