BlephEx is a painless in-office procedure that gently and precisely exfoliates the eyelids and lashes. Performing a deep cleanse of the debris and scurf along the lid margin using the BlephEx reduces the inflammatory burden that contributes to dry eye disease.
The BlephEx is a quick procedure that takes about 8 minutes to complete. After the eye is numbed, a patented micro-sponge is spun along the eyelid margins. Most patients feel a mild tickle during the procedure, but no significant pain or discomfort.
