Sometimes bacteria can build a large area of housing on the eyelashes. This biofilm can result in excessive crusting and stimulates lots of inflammation. The biofilm can be resistant to normal debridement methods. Sometimes this can even be in conjunction with eyelid infestation with Demodex mites.
BlephEx is a medical-grade instrument that uses rotational velocity to mechanically debride the eyelids and restore the base back to its pristine origins.
The treatment itself feels like a weird tickle and the recovery is quick. Patients are often able to drive home themselves after 20 minutes. Read about Dr. Raja’s personal experience! The BlephEx may have to be repeated periodically.
