Did you know that over half of patients experience unpleasant eye symptoms due to insufficient eyelid hygiene? Fortunately, there is a quick, easy and effective solution. BlephEx® is an in-office eyelid cleaning procedure that removes excess bacteria, toxins and biofilm. The process is painless, takes less than 10 minutes and produces lasting results. Bergen Optometry is pleased to offer BlephEx® treatments to help our patients maintain clean, healthy eyelids.
Each time you blink, a protective layer of moisture coats the front surface of your eye. An essential part of that moisture film is an oily layer called meibum. When the glands that produce meibum become blocked, it can lead to a condition called Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), which can cause dryness, irritation and vision issues. Systane® iLux® is a revolutionary treatment designed to clear the meibomian glands, improving function by up to 300%. The Systane® iLux® MGD Thermal Pulsation System is available at Bergen Optometry.
