Dr. James Rynerson, MD, Board Certified Ophthalmologist, and President and CEO of BlephEx, LLC the first and only medical device for in-office treatment of blepharitis joins eHealth Radio and the Eye Health Channel.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. James Rynerson discuss the following:
- What is blepharitis, what causes it, and how common is it?
- What is BlephEx?
- Please describe the device, the procedure and the results.
- What are other treatment options and are they effective? Why or why not.
- What is the maintenance routine following the initial procedure?
Tip: In the same way that gingivitis and tooth loss can be avoided by regular teeth cleaning and flossing, blepharitis and tear gland damage can be controlled by BlephEx treatments every four to six months, followed by nightly home maintenance. With routine maintenance blepharitis symptoms such as itching or scratchy eyes, foreign body sensation, tearing, crusting, redness and inflammation, mattering, dry eyes and eye rubbing can be significantly reduced.
