At Dr. Rod Kaufman, Optometrist, we are committed to bringing our patients the absolute best and latest in eye care technology. We are therefore excited to announce the incorporation of a new, groundbreaking treatment in dry eye, Meibomian Gland Disease and blepharitis (lid inflammation) called BlephEx. BlephEx is a new procedure that is performed by your eye doctor or trained staff member, which eliminates years of bacterial buildup and toxins which have accumulated along the margin of the eyelids.
This bacterial overgrowth and toxic by-products are responsible for the majority of inflammatory lid diseases such as dry eye, blepharitis, Meibomian Gland Disease (MGD), chronic eye irritation and contact lens intolerance.By eliminating the source of inflammation, contact lens intolerance can be avoided, red irritated eyes can be eliminated, and tear glands can begin producing normal tears again. In most cases, patients can reduce, and many times eliminate their need for artificial tears. Blephex takes about 8 minutes to perform and is well tolerated.
Most patients report significant relief after many years of suffering from these diseases.If you have been prescribed Restasis, use artificial tears, have punctual plugs, wear contact lens, have been diagnosed with blepharitis or ever been told to perform home lid scrubs, contact our office to determine if you are a candidate for the new BlephEx procedure. It could very well be the best thing you ever did for your eyes! Relief is finally here. Call our office today at 574-457-4476 to schedule your BlephEx evaluation.
