Promoting & Maintaining Healthy Eyelids
If your eyelids are itchy or irritated, you may be experiencing the symptoms of blepharitis. Treatment is available at Annapolis Vision Center to help restore your vision and comfort. Visit us for a comprehensive evaluation of your eye health and eyelids, and we’ll determine the right course of action for you.
What Is Blepharitis?
Blepharitis is an eye condition that results in inflammation of the eyelids. The inflammation is usually caused when the tiny oil-producing glands in your eyelids, known as meibomian glands, become blocked.
Though blepharitis doesn’t cause permanent damage to your eyesight and is not contagious, the symptoms can be uncomfortable and affect your daily life. Symptoms include:
- Excessive watery eyes
- Swollen eyelids
- Dry, flaking skin around the eyelids
- Blurred vision
- Sensitivity to light
Maintaining a good eyelid hygiene routine can help prevent blepharitis. If you are experiencing the symptoms of blepharitis, please book an appointment to visit us.
BlephEx: A Solution for Better Eyelid Hygiene
BlephEx is an in-office treatment that removes excess dirt, debris, and bacteria from the eyelids. This handheld device uses a soft, medical-grade micro-sponge that gently spins along the edges of your eyelids and eyelashes.
The BlephEx procedure is quick and painless. Numbing drops will be placed in your eyes before treatment begins, and the process only takes around 6–8 minutes to complete.
The results of a BlephEx treatment usually last 4–6 months, but with good at-home care, as advised by your optometrist, you can extend the time between visits.
