Dry Eye Treatment
BlephEx® Dry Eye Treatment
At Progressive Family Eye, we’re excited to offer BlephEx® treatment to patients seeking relief from dry eye disease in Northville, Livonia, Novi, and the greater Plymouth-Canton community. BlephEx® is a professional in-office treatment that provides long-lasting relief from dry eye disease and blepharitis (inflammation of the eyelids). It uses a gentle, rotating brush to clean, exfoliate, and remove bacteria and toxins from the eyelids and eyelashes. This advanced technology can help treat Demodex mite infestations and unclog meibomian glands (two common causes of dry eye syndrome).
How does BlephEx® work?
BlephEx® treatment involves using a handheld device with a small moistened medical-grade sponge attached to the end of it. During treatment, the sponge rotates at high speeds of about 2,000 rpm to safely and precisely remove debris from along the edges of your eyelashes. The device is calibrated to prevent excessive force on the eyelids, so you remain comfortable during the procedure. The treatment is quick and painless and allows us to effectively reduce or alleviate the symptoms of dry eye syndrome and blepharitis.
