Blepharitis Treatment in Richmond Hill


Banish Blepharitis

Blepharitis is linked to dry eye disease. Sometimes, it can be difficult to tell which came first—blepharitis or dry eye—since they often present concurrently.

Blepharitis occurs when there is inflammation of the eyelid margins. When bacteria forms on the eyelashes or collects on the eyelids, it can lead to infection and inflammation. This inflammation can block the meibomian glands, decreasing production of your tear film’s oil layer and causing dry eye. 

Our team has a few options at their disposal to help you banish blepharitis. Book an appointment to have your eyes examined today.

Symptoms of Blepharitis

The following symptoms may indicate blepharitis:

  • Red or watery eyes
  • Itchy or scaly eyelids
  • Crust on the eyelashes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Frequent blinking
  • Red, swollen eyelids

If you have any of these symptoms, please book an appointment today.

Zocular ZEST Treatment

Eyelid hygiene is a key component of blepharitis treatment. When there is significant debris along the eyelid margin, the more you blink, and more oil and dirt are pushed into the eyes every time you do. 

We use the Zocular Eyelid System Treatment (ZEST). This in-office treatment uses an okra-infused product to thoroughly cleanse the eyelids. This is done gently with a microsponge that also exfoliates away any dead skin cells or accumulated biofilm.

The treatment is well-tolerated and patients rarely feel any irritation during the cleansing process.

To learn more about ZEST, book your appointment today!
