What Patients Say


The BlephEx™ treatment is a precise, safe and effective way to clean and exfoliate your eyelids and eyelashes to relieve symptoms of blepharitis. It generally takes about fifteen minutes to perform the BlephEx™ procedure on all of your eyelid margins. The procedure is painless but you will feel a tickle or itch during the treatment!

Contact Lenses That Reduce Digital Eye Strain and Dry Eyes

contacts for dry eyes

If you use computers or digital devices for more than 2 hours per day, as 90% of US adults do, you may be susceptible to digital eye fatigue. Digital eye fatigue is defined as ocular discomfort experienced after prolonged exposure to digital screens. Biofinity Energys contacts are the latest line of contacts by Cooper Vision, designed to prevent discomfort from computers, cell phones, and tablets. Unlike regular contact lenses, they have Digital Zone Optics which are multiple aspheric curves in the lens to provide optimal viewing for close, far, and mid range. Because people blink less while using digital devices, Cooper Vision incorporated aquaform technology which prevents dry eyes due to digital device use.
