BlephEx is Here!
- Posted on: Mar 14 2019
Northwest Vision Institute is excited to offer our patients Blephex for the treatment of dry eye, blepharitis, and demodex infestation. Blephex is a noninvasive, in-office procedure that deep cleans eyelashes and eye lid margins. Dead skin cells, lash mites (Demodex), and bacterial toxins are exfoliated away in order to reduce eyelid inflammation and reduce risk for progressive dry eye disease.
How to prepare for for your Blephex treatment:
-Please refrain from wearing eye makeup to your exam. Any eye makeup will be washed away during Blephex.
-You can wear contact lenses to your appointment, however your contacts will be removed during the procedure.
You will be able to insert your contacts again afterwards, however some patients may feel more comfortable wearing their glasses.
-Your vision will not be impacted by Blephex and you will be able to drive yourself.
-Blephex can be repeated every 6-12 months as recommended by your doctor to keep your lids refreshed and clean.
