BlephEx Treatment Can Change Your View of Life

eyesight and eye doctor near you Airdrie, AB

If you’re familiar with the term blepharitis, it’s probably because you were diagnosed with this irritating condition! Which means you know how it feels to suffer from itchy, red, dry eyes, painful eyelids and crusty eyelashes. What you may not know is that BlephEx treatment can eliminate all these symptoms, restoring your comfortable vision.

To find out how revolutionary blepharitis therapy can help you, visit our Calgary optometrist to learn more about BlephEx treatment in Calgary.

Diagnosing blepharitis

Typical symptoms of blepharitis include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Itchy eyes
  • Red, swollen eyelids
  • Sore, irritated eyelids
  • Feeling like something is stuck in your eyes
  • Constant eye rubbing
  • Tearing eyes
  • Crusting around the roots of the eyelashes
  • Eyelids sticking together when you wake up

However, even you have all the above symptoms – only an eye exam can confirm that you have blepharitis.

Treating blepharitis

If our Calgary optometrist diagnoses you with blepharitis, we can soothe your symptoms with BlephEx – effective blepharitis treatment near you.

The first treatment we often recommend is applying warm compresses to your eyelids to loosen up clogged meibomian glands that aren’t producing sufficient lipids. We will also instruct you on the proper way to cleanse your eyelids.

But blepharitis can be stubborn, and it’s common to require more advanced treatments, such as BlephEx. This breakthrough procedure involves the use of a specialised spinning medical grade micro-sponge to clean your eyelids. First, our optometrist will insert numbing eye drops to prevent discomfort, and then we’ll use BlephEx to remove debris and the bacterial biofilm coating your lash margin.

BlephEx is painless and fast, done within minutes. Relief is typically experienced shortly afterwards. Many of our Calgary eye care patients have reported that the effects of BlephEx totally changed their lives. The removal of years of biofilm allowed them to finally enjoy smooth, clear and healthy vision again!
