This brand new, painless, in-office procedure allows your Optometrist to remove the overgrowth of naturally occurring bacteria that accumulated around your eyes and eyelashes leading to chronic blepharitis and dry eyes disease.
Our doctors of Optometry will use a handheld tool which precisely and carefully spins a medical grade micro-sponge at 1000 RPM along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing bacteria and debris. The procedure lasts about 6-8 minutes leaving the eyelids feeling exfoliated, clean and healthy for months.
BelphEx™ improves lid health and hygiene. Eyelid cleaning should be performed routinely, similar to getting your teeth cleaned at your dental office and performing at home brushing. We recommend routine in-office eyelid cleanings with BelphEx™ every 4-18 months, at the discretion of your Optometrist due to the severity of your eyelid condition. We will provide you with tips and products to aid in your at home care after your BelphEx™ procedure is performed at our clinic.
