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. Common complaints from patients include itchy, scratchy, red, dry eyes. What appears to be ‘eyelid dandruff’ is also very common.
Blepharitis would be typically, managed with lid hygiene and warm compresses, but most patients would complain that symptoms reoccurred a few weeks after stopping the treatment. Relief is finally here, as a next level line of care we have added the first and only clinician treatment for blepharitis in the world into our protocol, BlephEx®.

The patented BlephEx® handpiece is used to very precisely and carefully, spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes exfoliating and removing, bacteria, biofilm scurf, debris and toxins that lead to inflammation. Blephex provides our patients with a significant improvement in their ocular symptoms.
