BlephEx Treatment for Dry Eye and Blepharitis

FontResizer

BlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed at Hayden Vision - American Eye Institute. A revolutionary new patented handpiece 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.

The patented micro-sponge is disposable and a new one is used for each individual eyelid so bacteria is not spread between the lids.The eyes are rinsed well afterwards. 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.
