Introducing Blephex Healthy Lids for Life

We are pleased to be able to offer Blephex to our patients with blepharitis. Over 82 million people in the US are affected by blepharitis. If you have red, tired, itchy, crusty, burning, or dry eyes you could be one of the millions.
 
Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids caused by an overgrowth of normal bacteria living along the lid and the base of the eyelashes. This increases with age because we make fewer natural antibodies in our tears.
 
This bacterial overgrowth causes crusting along the eyelid and creates a sticky biofilm that harbors bacterial exotoxins. Since the eyelid margins are difficult to clean, the overgrowth and biofilm can build up over many years. This biofilm in turn allows even more bacteria to flourish, causing a multitude of irritating symptoms and chronic inflammation. In turn, chronic inflammation affects all the lid structures, namely the tear-producing glands. The end result is constant eye irritation, foreign body sensation, and chronic dry eye if blepharitis is not treated.
 
By using Blephex, we can easily and painlessly directly clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes and remove the biofilm. This will almost immediately improve your symptoms and help control long-term damage to your tear glands. Blephex improves the overall health of the eyelid. With treatments typically every 6 months, patients can begin to produce more of their own tears and enjoy a life free of the chronic, irritating symptoms of blepharitis and dry eye.
 
Blephex takes about 7 minutes for us to do in the office and is completely painless. Blephex is not covered by insurance but is extremely affordably priced. When you consider the costs of chronic dry eye treatment, which are often over $800 per year, you will save hundreds of dollars you would otherwise spend on artificial tears, Restasis, antibiotics and anti- inflammtories, and for the first time you will enjoy the benefits of an easy, effective treatment!
