Efficacy in the Treatment of Blepharitis with Jett Plasma

Blepharitis is the inflammation of the eyelid that affects the eyelashes or tear production, occurring when the tiny sebaceous glands of the inner eyelid become inflamed. It often occurs along with other skin problems or allergies. Common symptoms include red eyes, itching, and burning sensation in the eyes (feeling of sand in the eyes), dandruff at the base of the lashes, tearing or watery eyes, swollen and red eyelids, crusts on the edge of the eyelids, hypersensitivity to contact lenses, smoke, wind, pool chlorine, and eye drop preservatives, and trichiasis.


A study published by Med Crave, a medical research publication site, confirms the effectiveness of using plasma jet for the treatment of mild forms of blepharitis, indicating it as a safe treatment using a golden tip and showing continuous improvement over sessions, as well as for other ophthalmological treatments.


Twenty patients were previously examined with a slit lamp and a corneal topographer, and underwent biomicroscopic examination. They were later treated with Jett Plasma Lift Medical using a golden tip and local anesthesia. Reassessments took place after 1 week, 2 weeks, and 1 month post-treatment. Patients also answered the Dry Eye Questionnaire (DEQ-5) before and after treatment.


They could conclude that the treatment of mild forms of blepharitis using Jett Plasma is effective and should be repeated after 4 months for better results. It also proved effective in the treatment of various ophthalmological diseases and implications.
