BlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eyecare professional or trained technician.

The BlephEx® handpiece is used to precisely spin a soft medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes.

This procedure effectively removes accumulated bacterial biofilm, much like a dental cleaning removes accumulated plaque, also a biofilm.

Once the biofilm is removed, your eyelids are cleaner and healthier.

A healthy eyelid is critical for normal tear production.

How long does it take?

  • The procedure lasts about 6 – 8 minutes.

What does it feel like?

  • Most patients simply report a tickling sensation.

A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort.

Are there any restrictions or after care?

  • After the procedure, you may resume normal activities. Home cleaning regimes can continue

Can it be repeated?

  • BlephEx® should be repeated every 4-6 months as determined by your eye doctor.

The sooner in life that BlephEx® is begun as a routine element of eye care, the better the long-term results.
