The Blephex tool is designed to help eliminate some of the problems associated with blepharitis. Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids caused by an over growth of normal bacteria living along the lid and base of the eyelashes. In many cases this is the cause of itching, redness and dry eyes. Since your eyelids are difficult to clean, this bacteria and its debris accumulates and can cause inflammation and damage to the eyelid and tear glands.
Using the Blephex treatment, we can clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes, resulting in an immediate improvement in your symptoms related to allergies, dry eyes and overall eye health. This same treatment can also be used to treat Demodex, a tiny parasitic mite that lives in, or near, the hair follicles. If left untreated, it can cause many of the same symptoms described above.
