Are you suffering from digital eye strain?January 7, 2015
I offered Blephex to a patient 2 months ago who has had the entire gamut of treatment with minimal improvement. Her chief complaint was that she could not read for more than 5 minutes without her vision getting blurry. I saw her last week and she was ecstatic because she could now read without blurry vision. She is an avid reader, and was thrilled that she could enjoy her books.

What is BlephEx™?
BlephEx™ is both a device and a revolutionary procedure to treat blepharitis, an inflammation of the eyelids caused by faulty oil glands at the base of the eyelashes. Blepharitis can cause itchy, watery, or red eyes, swollen eyelids, sensitivity to light, frequent blinking, or even the loss of your eyelashes.
It’s a frustrating condition, and in the past it’s been difficult to treat. Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore, thanks to BlephEx™.
The precise cause of blepharitis is hard to pin down—it could be caused by a bacterial infection, rosacea, even allergies—but it’s not surprising when you ask yourself one simple question:
When’s the last time you cleaned your eyelids?
We clean every other part of our bodies, every other piece of exposed skin, but our eyelids get neglected. There’s good reason for that, of course: nobody likes to get soap in their eyes. But that neglect means a building up of debris that can lead to complications like blepharitis.
Blephex is a very simple, painless, in-office procedure that removes biofilm, bacterial exotoxins, and scurf (of which dandruff is a form) from the eyelids. It even exfoliates your eyelids.
The procedure is similar to a getting a deep cleaning at the dentist’s office, only on your eyelids with no sharp instruments. There is no pain and the whole thing takes about eight minutes.
We’ll use the BlephEx™ device, which spins a medical grade micro-sponge and a special cleaning solution, to clean along the edge of your eyelids and lashes. Then, we’ll rinse.
Our patients can’t stop talking about this procedure- how refreshed and clean their eyes feel. The feedback has been amazing. Not only are the eyes less irritated but it often clears up the vision as well. We know you’ll love it, too.
