The clinic offers Blephex and IPL therapy – dry eye treatments that minimize inflammation and restore the normal function of the tear ducts and Meibomian glands, which produce the oil that naturally moisturizes the eyes. With the latest announcement, Clear Vision Institute is providing a long-term solution for dry eyes caused by genetic conditions or injury.

The announcement coincides with an article published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, which stated that Blephex and IPL are among the top 10 medical devices that alleviate or treat the root cause of dry eyes. These procedures are painless, and the results are long-lasting, with some patients needing three to four sessions per year, depending on the severity of their condition.
“Dry eyes are a pain to deal with. Uncomfortable, irritable, and scratchy – dry eyes tend to make daily life difficult at best, and rather painful, at worst,” said a representative. “The good news is that dry eyes are easily treatable after a proper diagnosis. To make sure your specific cause is understood, an examination will be required to determine which of the many causes is affecting you. At our facility here in South Jordan, Utah, we offer comprehensive care and treatment for those living with dry eyes.”
Clear Vision Institute’s optometrists will first assess the patient’s condition to see if they can have Blephex as a standalone procedure or if it should be used together with other heat-based treatments or eye drops.
Blephex is a handheld device that uses a medical-grade sponge to remove bacteria, biofilm, and toxins from the eyelids and physically exfoliate the Meibomian glands.
If the patient’s dry eye is caused by a skin condition, the clinic recommends intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy – an FDA-approved treatment for skin lesions caused by inflammatory conditions like eczema and rosacea. IPL therapy uses infrared light applied directly onto the eyelids, loosening up the flaky skin and eliminating blockages.
