ZEST Deep-Cleaning Treatment
Why do I need ZEST?
Bacteria are a contributory factor in blepharitis and dry eye.
Deposits along the lid margin can become infected with bacteria. The bacteria then produce substances which cause irritation, burning or itching. Inflammation of the lids affects the meibomian (oil producing) glands. Without enough oil, tears evaporate too quickly, leaving the eye dry. In the absence of sufficient antibacterial tears, bacteria grow unrestricted, creating further inflammation. Without treatment, it ends up as a vicious cycle of chronically dry and sore eyes.
By eliminating the bacteria, the inflammatory contributors of blepharitis can be reduced and the overall health of the eyelid and meibomian glands is improved.
If microscopic examination has identified deposits on your eyelid margins, you will, therefore, be advised to thoroughly clean your eyelids. ZEST is a comfortable, natural and effective alternative to BlephEx.
