Blephadex solutions and Treatments for Blepharitis
Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids. Anyone can get blepharitis at any age, but the prevalence increases with age. This chronic inflammation can adversely affect the structures of the eyelid including the tear glands, which can lead to chronic dry eye disease.
The symptoms of blepharitis are:
Itching or scratchy eyes, foreign body sensation, tearing, crusting, redness/ inflammation or dry eyes.
Our Optometrists can diagnose, advise treatment and provide further information in your eye exam.
Blephadex foam and wipes contain tea-tree oil and coconut oil which cleans, soothes and moisturises the eyelids. This formulation eliminates the bacterial debris and improves the overall health of your eyes.
For severe cases our Optometrists can clean and exfoliate your lashes using a pre-medicated device. This immediately improves your symptoms and helps control any long-term damage to your tear glands.
Depending on the level of your inflammation, treatments are recommended every 6-12 months and can be supported by daily eye hygiene routines at home.
