  • Blephasteam Goggles

    Does anyone have experience with the blephasteam? I知 tempted to try them, but am wondering if a facial steamer would achieve the same results, as I知 pretty sure I have one of those lying about somewhere!

    Hey!

    I have a pair of these goggles. If i'm honest the effects don't last as long as i'd thought they would. I use it every morning but have yet to notice any beneficial effect, by that I mean helping reduce the amount of drops I have to put in my eyes.

    I have had them for about two months.

      I have not tried them, but have been interested in them too. Most complaints are that it's not hot enough and doesn't fit on the face well (leaves marks on face too).

      I believe a good microwaveable compress and a thermometer to check the temperature is the cheapest AND best solution. It just takes some finesse. You go too cold, you won't melt the oils...you go too hot, you increase inflammation. The goal is to get the bad meibum out with heat and manual expression, clear the bad oil out of your eye with a saline rinse and then wash the lids with a hypochlorous acid spray.

      MGD1701 has a pair and he likes them. Maybe he will come in here to respond.

        I got 2 pairs, I think theyre useless. I stopped using them. One pair is unopened, if you're in Toronto region, you can pick it up for free.

        I find microwave warm compress to be way better.

          I知 in the uk unfortunately! But may be good for somebody else. I知 a bit hesitant with warm compresses as a specialist I saw said it can damage your eyes. Although I think this might only be if it痴 too hot?

            Shell259 get a laser thermometer. Not expensive on amazon in USA at least. Microwave the bruder mask. Check temp. If too hot shake it for a lottle while. It will cool down. Check agsin. Good temp go lay down until it cools. Repeat.

              I have a pair. I do like them although the effects as @hannahmaywils mentioned, don't last too long. I'm in constant pain, so it's very nice to go home after a long day at work and enjoy a few hours (or minutes) of relief.

                Hi Shell

                I find Blephastem great for its consistent moist heat, 42C, fixed time and safty.

                Close eyes and 15 -20 min are even better, but the company suggests 10 min which I find strange.

                When it is green, put it on for 5 -10 min then press the bottom = 15-20 min

                Recent study by Dr C. Blackie shows temp. for warm compress must be 45C and reheat for results, so called Bundle Method.

                All doctors just told me 10 min. which in fact useless - frustrating -
                I wasted 3 months to get it right - did lots of experiments/research.
                Even brought a few facial steamers & laser thermometer so I know its heat is about 44C. It did help at the beginning but Blephasteam 15-20 min should do the same job too - and much safer.

                My own findings
                feel great afterwards and feel oil is flowing are the best indications.
                consistent moisture heat, 15-20 min., 45C

                Rosacea/inflammation
                When one has such issues, be careful with the heat.
                Most doctors recommend cold compress or a combination of cold/warm instead.

                  I use them for both dry eyes and to help resolve styes which seem to plague me.

                  Unfortunately my pair seems to be dying and I'm searching for another (which brought me to this forum!)

                  Deep dry, any chance you'd like to sell me your unopened one? I'm in the U.S. and having a tough time getting my hands on a replacement.

                    kevinscribbles are you on doxycycline? I was having a lot of styes and then about a year later my eyes got really bad.

                    Consider the styes to be an alarm bell. Really think about getting IPL and lipiflow asap to clear out those glands before they get in a bad inflammation feedback loop.

                      Shipping from Canada is quite expensive. You can also buy it directly from the manufacturer:
                      https://www.theapharmaceuticals-shop.co.uk/index.html

                      or ebay as well.

                        I'm in Toronto and my wife has been looking to try these blephasteam goggles to treat a stubborn stye. If you still have the unopened pair, please let me know. Thanks!

                          Downtown meet at Financial District area? I doubt it can help your wife , better off doing warm compress and IPL.

                          IPL has been shown to help styles immediately. See Dr Richard Maharaj for IPL, and mention Stye + IPL + Dr Laura Periman.

                            Great! It's worth a shot trying at least. Thanks for the tip on IPL. We'll look into that too. I can meet you downtown for sure. Send me an email at [Editor's note: send a private message instead please?] and I'll pass on my number. Many thanks!

                              All these 塗ome treatments are rubbish. I stopped warm compresses and lid scrub all together and literally have noticed no changes. If anything my eyes feel less inflamed. Just goes to show that half these products are absolutely useless. Waste of money don稚 even go near the blephasteam! I don稚 get why people waste so much time trying to trying to 田ure dry eyes, it痴 chronic it値l never go away, just treat the symptoms through eye drops and moisture goggles
