Blepharitis is a common condition where crusty discharge builds up on and around the eyelids and eyelashes. This causes stickiness around the eyes on awakening, and sore crusty stinging sensations with the discomfort associated with the condition. This requires regular hygiene of the lids and lashes at home, but sometimes this is just not sufficient, so extra treatment is necessary within our optometry practice. This is where the procedure of microblepharoexfoliation with the Blephex instrument can be performed at Prime Vision-Care Centres Ormond practice. If you feel that you may suffer from this condition please contact us for an appointment to have this assessed.
