The Way Blepharitis Develops
The inflammation of skin around the lining of the eye occurs because of bacteria. Microscopic organisms naturally live on the body. In the case of Blepharitis, the consequence of bacteria is the development of a biofilm. In this thin layer, tiny particles of debris are caught. Additionally, exotoxins from bacteria also accumulate, causing chronic inflammation within the tissues that line the eye.
We explain it like this: We clean the body, the hair, and the teeth through daily hygiene. The inside of the eye is not a place we may even think of cleaning. In many cases, the eyes naturally manage this task. As we get older, especially, the eyelids may need a little help.
BlephEx for Healthier Eyes
Dr. Andronico specializes in patients with dry eye disease. If you experience chronic irritation, you may benefit from the short, in-office BlephEx procedure.
BlephEx is designed specifically for cleaning biofilm and debris from the eyelid. The procedure is performed with using the patented BlephEx instrument. Dr. Andronico carefully moves a spinning medical-grade micro-sponge along the eyelid. Gentle spinning removes debris and bacteria quickly and comfortably.
The BlephEx treatment has been very successful in millions of patients. The procedure is repeated depending on the patient’s needs. Similar to having your teeth cleaned, your eyelids need continued care as well.
