BlephEx Treatment for Blepharitis

What is Blepharitis?

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.  Anyone can get blepharitis at any age, but the prevalence increases with age, since as we get older, we make fewer natural antibodies in our tears.

This overgrowth of bacteria causes crusting along the eyelid, and creates a sticky biofilm that harbors bacterial exotoxins.  Since the eyelid margins are difficult to clean, this overgrowth of bacteria, scurf, and biofilm can build up over many years.

The sugary biofilm allows even more bacteria to flourish, not only causing a multitude of irritating symptoms, but eventually chronic inflammation, due to the inflammatory nature of exotoxings.  The inflammation, in turn, adversely affects all of the structures in the eyelid, namely, the tear glands.


Constant eye irritation, foreign body sensation and chronic dry eye disease are the end result if not treated.  Now, thanks to BlephEx®, your doctor can directly clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes, and remove the biofilm, which will almost immediately improve your symptoms and help control the long-term damage to your tear glands.
