Dry Eye Treatment,
At Omaha Primary EyeCare in Elkhorn, NE, we offer BlephEx® dry eye treatment, a painless and non-invasive procedure that provides long-term relief for blepharitis and other dry eye conditions.
Blepharitis is an inflammation of the eyelids, which can lead to various symptoms and discomfort. This condition causes redness, itchiness, crusts, flakes, and even dry eye.
By removing the buildup of bacteria and debris on the eyelids, BlephEx® treatment can help improve the overall health of your eyes and reduce the symptoms of dry eye syndrome. It can also improve the effectiveness of other dry eye treatments, such as prescription eye drops or punctal plugs.
How does BlephEx® work?
BlephEx® treatment involves the use of a handheld device that rotates a medical-grade micro-sponge along the edge of the eyelids to remove excess bacteria and debris. This gentle exfoliation process takes just a few minutes per eye and is completely painless. The device is calibrated to prevent excessive force on the eyelids, so you remain comfortable during the procedure. This advanced technology can help treat Demodex mite infestations and unclog meibomian glands (two common causes of blepharitis and dry eye syndrome).
