Blephex for Blepharitis

What is Blepharitis?

Blepharitis (blef-uh-RYE-tis) is a common eyelid inflammation that can develop at any age.

Blepharitis typically occurs when tiny oil glands located near the base of the eyelashes become clogged, leading to swollen, irritated and red eyes.

Several diseases and conditions can cause blepharitis, such as dry eyes. Blepharitis doesn’t result in permanent vision damage and is not contagious.

What Are the Symptoms of Blepharitis?

A few typical symptoms include:

  • itchy, sore and red eyelids that stick together
  • crusty or greasy eyelashes
  • a burning, gritty sensation in your eyes
  • increased sensitivity to light (photophobia)
  • swollen eyelid margins
  • wearing contact lenses become unbearable
  • abnormal eyelash growth or loss of eyelashes in severe cases

How is Blepharitis Treated?

tired eyesWhen properly performed, blepharitis can be treated to reduce and alleviate uncomfortable blepharitis symptoms.

The treatment is repeated at regular intervals depending on the severity of the condition.

By eliminating the root cause of blepharitis, the overall health of the eyelid will be significantly improved and will allow you to produce more tears and enjoy life without the chronic and irritating symptoms associated with blepharitis.

How Soon Will I Notice a Difference?

Depending on the stage and severity of the condition, patients tend to feel a difference right after treatment.

However, if you’ve experienced significant damage to your tear glands due to blepharitis, it may take several months before observing any changes in your condition.

Certain people may require multiple treatments before they begin to heal.

Nightly hygiene and repeat treatments will treat, cure and prevent a recurrence.
