What is blepharitis?
Blepharitis is a chronic, inflammatory disease of the eyelids caused by an over growth of normal bacterial living along the lid and base of the eyelashes. This overgrowth of bacteria causes crusting along the eyelid, and creates a sticky environment that traps dead skin cells and other debris among the eyelashes. Since the eyelids are difficult to clean, this overgrowth of bacteria, scurf and debris can accumulate over many years. Constant eye irritation, foreign body sensation and chronic dry eye disease are the end result if not treated. Now, thanks to BlephEx, Dr. Dziuba can directly clean and exfoliate your eyelids and lashes and help control the long term damage to your tear glands.
