Blephasteam® is the first convenient eyelid warming device recommended to relieve symptoms of Meibomian Gland Dysfunction and associated diseases such as posterior blepharitis, meibomitis, ocular rosacea, chalazion, contact lens intolerance, Dry Eye.

Blephasteam® provides a moist and heat therapy. This dual action unblocks the meibomian glands, improves the tear quality, therefore improving symptoms, ocular health, vision and comfort. Based on the original scientific studies of Dr JR Fuller, Blephasteam® device has been developed in conformity with CE mark by Laboratoires Théa, a leading ophthalmologic company specialized in lid care and designed in collaboration with eye care specialists. It is well established that Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) conditions involve an alteration in the quality of the tear film lipid layer. This alteration is responsible for symptoms of eye irritation, inflammation and apparition of concomitant ocular surface diseases such as posterior blepharitis, meibomitis, ocular rosacea, chalazion, contact lens intolerance, Dry Eye.

It has been observed by Ophthalmologists that a daily application of heat and humidity on the eyelids has a beneficial effect upon various Meibomian Gland Dysfunction conditions. Blephasteam® Due to the unique nature of the design it is possible to gain a set heat, which gives latent therapy and achieves a moisture that is beneficial to eye health. Quality of blink preserved - so meibomian oil can be released on closure and tear can be re-surfaced on blinking. Efficient on tear film stability and ocular health Convenient and easy to use :10 minutes session twice a day Scientifically proven by an independent body to improve tear quality, decrease tear evaporation and improve vision. The therapy is a natural solution for eyelids and ocular surface disease, no preservatives or phosphates.

Blephasteam® is a patented medical device based on the original scientific studies of Dr JR Fuller.

Blephasteam® is designed to deliver in standardised conditions a latent moist heat therapy to melt meibomian secretions with a real efficacy in only 10 minutes. This dual action unblocks naturally the meibomian glands (glands inside the eyelids and responsible of lipid production). As a result, the quality of tears is greatly improved, which provides a better comfort, vision, and ocular health.

The principal effect is to improve the thickness and quality of the lipid layer of the tear film thus enhancing tear function. The lipid layer of the tear film is derived from the Meibomian glands of the eyelids, which can often be blocked producing conditions such as dry eye syndrome.

Blephasteam® allows normal functioning of the upper lid, facilitating the lipid release at lid closure and tear resurfacing during blinking.

Blephasteam® is convenient, safe, and allows clear vision during the use, allowing you to carry out normal task activities such as reading, watching television…

Blephasteam® has been studied and validated to ensure device safety.
