BlephEx is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eyecare professional or trained technician. This in-office procedure allows your doctor to take an active role in treating blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction and secondary dry eye disease, a type of skin condition that creates flaking, scaling and inflammation of the eyelids.

BlephEx is used to very precisely and carefully, spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids. By removing the excess flakes, biofilm, bacteria, and bacterial toxins, we can manage and treat the main cause of inflammatory dry eye and lid disease.

The procedure lasts about 6 -8 minutes and is well tolerated. Most patients simply report a tickling sensation. A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort.After the procedure, the patient is instructed on how to maintain their clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. Since home treatments are only semi-effective, the procedure is typically repeated at 4-6 month intervals.
