If your eyes are dry, itchy, or irritated, they can negatively impact your vision and your well-being. Thankfully there are many at-home and professional dry eye treatment options out there, and we can help design a treatment plan just for you. This focus on the patient and their needs is what makes Wicker Park Eye Center one of the leaving vision practices in Chicago, IL.
What many patients don’t realize is that cleanliness can help address dry eyes to a certain extent. Let’s consider the importance of having clean eyelids and why Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes could be one part of treating your dry eye.
More and more eye care specialists agree that cleaning off the eyelids can be beneficial to eye health and vision quality. By cleaning your eyelids regularly, you are preventing eye infections and styes, avoiding potential damage to the surface of the eye itself, and potentially preventing attacks of dry eye. Washing your face properly and daily helps, but some products make cleaning the eyelids a whole lot easier. That’s where Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes come into play.
Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes are wipes that are specially designed to clean, soothe, and massage a person’s eyelids. Using these eyelids wipes helps keep the skin of the eyelids clean and your eyes feeling refreshed.
Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes have two key ingredients:
Using Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes is simple.
After a shower, bath, or washing your face, use a Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipe to clean the eyelids and the area around your eyes. Both the upper eyelids and lower eyelids should be wiped thoroughly to clean the skin around the eyes.
Overall, the wiping takes just a minute or so to clean both eyes and only needs to be done once a day. That’s all there is to it.
Many patients are surprised to find out how dirty their eyelids can get, and just how good it feels to use the Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes. People with dry eyes tend to experience greater relief of their symptoms.
Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes can address the following problems:
It’s worth a try if you suffer from dry eye, eye irritation, or other problems that impact your eye health. During the consultation process, we can recommend several dry eye treatments that might be most ideal for you.
If Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes do not offer complete relief of dry eye, we can discuss other treatment options to consider. If anything, Blephadex™ Eyelid Wipes can serve as a supplement to more involved dry eye treatment, and a way to help manage some of the side effects of the condition.
