While there are several noticeable symptoms of blepharitis, many of these symptoms can also arise from other conditions. Therefore, if you experience any of these symptoms, it's crucial to make an appointment with our eye doctor to ensure proper diagnosis.
Symptoms of Blepharitis include:
Specifically designed to treat blepharitis, BlephEx cleans and exfoliates the eyelids and eyelashes safely using a specially designed micro sponge. The procedure is generally quick, lasting only about 8 minutes, and involves minimal discomfort. To ensure maximum comfort, the eye doctor typically places a numbing drop in each eye before the treatment.
The most crucial aspect of the BlephEx procedure is its ability to remove the exo-toxin-filled bio-film layer from the margin of the eyelid. This prevents damage to the tear glands from inflammation and reduces the likelihood of developing dry eye syndrome.
BlephEx treatment is particularly beneficial for older patients who suffer from blepharitis and dry eye symptoms. However, it is effective for any patients with blepharitis, regardless of age. BlephEx directly treats the eyelids, leading to improved tear quality and production, and then a significant reduction in symptoms. In many cases, comfort levels can improve almost immediately after the procedure.
