What is BlephEx?
BlephEx TM is a great treatment to have in combination with other treatments or as a stand-alone treatment that effectively removes bacteria and debris which can build up on the eyelashes in Blepharitis, by cleaning the eyelid margins. This is a more effective way of cleaning the lids than using lid scrubs alone, as the instrument is designed to quickly and effectively remove lash build-up which in turn helps to reduce the eyelid inflammation associated with Blepharitis.
It is a useful aid in managing Blepharitis as the treatment acts almost like a ‘deep clean’ of the lids, which can be repeated as necessary, for example, every 4-6 months. Thanks to the BlephEx TM we are able to treat you precisely and safely. We can clean and exfoliate the eyelids and eyelashes, which will immediately improve the symptoms. The BlephEx TM will complement the range of treatments we offer at the Expert Dry Eye Clinic.
BlepExTM is a painless procedure performed by our experts. This revolutionary treatment is a handpiece that spins a medical grade sponge along the edge of the eye lids and eyelashes to remove scruff and debris exfoliating the eyelids safely and efficiently.
