How BlephEx® Works
BlephexBlephEx® is a painless in-office procedure performed by your eyecare professional. A revolutionary new patented BlephEx® handpiece is used to very precisely and carefully, spin a medical grade micro-sponge along the edge of your eyelids and lashes, removing scurf and debris and exfoliating your eyelids. The patented micro-sponge is disposable and a clean one is used for each individual eyelid so bacteria is not spread between the lids.The eyes are rinsed well afterwards. The procedure lasts about 6 -8 minutes and is well tolerated. Most patients simply report a tickling sensation. A numbing drop is usually placed in each eye prior to treatment for increased comfort. After the procedure, the patient is instructed on how to maintain their clean eyelids with regular nightly lid hygiene. Since home treatments are only semi-effective, the procedure is typically repeated at 4-6 month intervals.
If you feel like your eyes aren’t making enough tears or your’e suffering from one or more severe dry eye symptoms, Central Phoenix Eyecare and you can decide if TrueTear may be right for you. TrueTear is a device that uses state-of-the-art technology called neurostimulation to help your eyes temporarily make more of your own tears.
At Central Phoenix Eyecare we provide patients with the latest and greatest in contact lens technology. We offer a variety of additional testing to ensure the correct contact lens fit. We also carry a variety of contact lenses in stock. In some cases you can leave with your contacts the same day!
The MiBoFlo Thermoflo®
MiboFlo Thermoflo is a new therapeutic device for the treatment of dry eye. It employs a proprietary thermoelectric heat pump designed to liquify inspissated secretions and improve meibomian glandular function. MiBo ameliorates the evaporative component of dry eye.
The MiBo delivers an effective temperature of 108 degrees within a variance of less than 3%. The unit has an adjustable timer allowing for physician-controlled customization of therapy.
The MiBoFlo device is constructed from quality components and is manufactured entirely in the United States. Every unit is meticulously inspected and tested before shipping. The touch screen is user friendly, highly functional and easy to read. The safety key acts both as a power switch and a security device. A green LED in the handle indicates power being delivered and consistent heat is being delivered to the hand piece. A 2 year warranty with overnight replacement, free software upgrades, gives the practitioner peace of mind. Additional detachable applicators are available for a modest cost.

A routine eye care visit is essential to ensuring your eyes are healthy and your vision is the best it can be. We utilize our skills and the latest in technology to determine visual acuity (how clearly you see) and to look for signs of eye diseases. Many eye diseases, like glaucoma, have no noticeable symptoms until they have progressed to a point where vision loss can occur.

Update for Patients of Central Phoenix Eye Care,
As of today, we are postponing all routine eye care as recommended by the CDC. We will be available for emergency eye care Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 4:00pm. If you have any eye issues please call the office. We will determine over the phone if you need to come in or if you need a referral. One of us will be available for you. If you need to order contact lenses or need replacement glasses please call our office. We will be able to ship contact lenses to you in most cases. If you need a refill on eye drops for glaucoma or other ongoing issues please call our office and we can take care of that. If you have questions please call. As soon as we are advised by the CDC to resume routine eye care we will let you know and begin to schedule appointments again. We have struggled with the dilemma of staying open for everyone verses joining with the greater community in preventing the spread of the corona virus. We believe it is important to do all we can to protect as many as we can. Please join us by staying home and limiting your time out in the community. We will continue to do all we can to protect our staff here and keep this environment disinfected above our normal standards for those emergency visits.
