BlephEx addresses chronic inflammatory disease of the eyelids, which adversely affects the tear glands and contributes to irritation and dry eye. BlephEx treatment precisely and safely cleans and exfoliates your eyelids and lashes, which will almost immediately improve your symptoms. More importantly, by completely removing the exotoxin-laden biofilm along the lid margin, your doctor can help you avoid long-term inflammatory damage to your tear glands, preventing chronic dry eye syndrome. Over 50% of all patients suffer from some type of dry eye and blepharitis symptoms. BlephEx® is a new, in-office procedure that allows your doctor to take an active role in helping prevent dry eye and blepharitis. BlephEx® cleans excess bacteria, biofilm and bacterial toxins, the main causes of inflammatory dry eye and lid disease. With regular treatments, patients can finally reduce their risk of returning symptoms associated with dry eye and blepharitis. The BlephEx® treatment is well tolerated and only takes a few minutes to perform. BlephEx® can save the patient hundreds of dollars in the costs of prescription drops and artificial tears.
