BlephEx treats patients suffering with blepharitis. Blepharitis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the eyelid that affects over 82 million people in the US. Blepharitis is caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lid and base of the eyelashes. Symptoms can include:
- Eye irritation
- Foreign body sensation
- Dry eyes
- Crusting and mattering
- Red, swollen eyelids
- Eyelids that appear greasy
BlephEx treatment works by directly cleaning and exfoliating the eyelid and lashes, thoroughly eliminating bacterial build up along the lid margin. It is a painless, quick in office procedure and helps increase your production of natural tears.
Following treatment, patients will see the majority of symptoms associated with blepharitis will be resolved within 4 weeks, although you may experience relief sooner. BlephEx treatment usually lasts between 4-6 months. Repeating treatment at regular intervals will help with long-term relief.
