Blepharitis is a common condition that is caused by an abnormal growth of bacteria in the eyelids and lashes, leading to the deposit of biofilm at the lid margin and eyelid inflammation. Patients commonly complain of itchy, scratchy, red, dry eyes. The presence of what seems to be ‘eyelid dandruff’ is also very common.
Traditionally, blepharitis would be managed with lid hygiene and warm compresses, but most patients would complain that symptoms resumed a few weeks after stopping the treatment. To address this issue, our team of doctors incorporated the first and only clinician treatment for blepharitis in the world into our protocol. Blephex is a revolutionary device that performs a thorough microexfolliation of the lid margins, precisely and carefully, to remove bacteria, biofilm and bacteria toxins that lead to inflammation. When added to our comprehensive blepharitis treatment protocol, Blephex provides our patients with a significant improvement in their ocular symptoms.
