BlephEx® Microexfoliation of the Eyelid Margin to treat Blepharitis
There are 2 main types of blepharitis that can impact tear functionality and ocular comfort, namely "anterior" and "posterior" blepharitis. The differentiation relates to the location within the eyelids and the structures that are impacted. Different glands, each with specified functions, are aligned along the eyelid margins. Blockages caused by inflammation, bacterial overgrowth (infectious or non-infectious) and biochemical modulations of secreted oils will ultimately impact human tear stability and functionality.
