Here at Look Optometry + Eyewear, we specialize in blephex treatment.
BlephEx is a painless in-office procedure that is used to very precisely and carefully spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelid and lashes. This removes scurf and debris as well as exfoliates your eyelids.
The micro-sponge is disposable, and a new one is used for every patient so that bacteria is not spread between eyelids. This procedure will last between six to eight minutes and is very tolerable. Most patients say they feel a tickling sensation. Prior to the procedure, a drop is placed in each eye for increased comfort.
After the procedure, the patient is instructed about how to maintain their eyelids. This will include nightly lid hygiene.
Many people try a home treatment option prior to our procedure. However, most are only semi-effective and need to be repeated every four to six months. Patients love our revolutionary option much better.
Your vision is a part of your body, and you want to make sure that you are taking great care of it. Our compassionate and educated staff will work with you and get you the results you are looking for.
