Blephex- new blepharitis treatment

Until now treatment has revolved around cleaning and massaging the eyelids with at home treatments. Unfortunately these treatments can take months to work and have to be repeated very frequently to see any significant improvement. But a new treatment for blepharitis is set to change that.

Blephex is a painless deep clean treatment to the eyelids and meibomian glands that we perform for you in the practice that gives instant and lasting improvement to blepharitis symptoms. Repeated every 6-12 months, Blephex cleans debris, opens and unblocks the meibomian glands and can considerably improve blepharitis symptoms.  It is perfect for persistent cases or where time is an issue and cleaning regularly is difficult to comply with.

Alisdair has already treated many people since the new technology arrived last week and the effects have been very promising.

One of the first patients to have it carried said ‘ My eyes instantly feel better, so much more comfortable.’

Blephex treatment is available for a special introductory rate of £120 until the 31st July. (Normal price £150)
