Midland Eye is offering a new treatment called Tixel® to help treat long-standing dry eye symptoms in patients.
But what is Tixel® , how long does it take to administer and how many treatments are required? We answer some frequently asked questions in this new blog:
Tixel® is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can naturally enhance moisture levels and restore hydration to your eyes. It is commonly used for the treatment of dry eyes.
Dry eyes are caused if your tear ducts do not produce enough tears to your eyes comfortably lubricated or if you have an imbalance in the composition of tears.
Dry eye symptoms vary from person to person, depending on the severity of disease. They include:
Tixel® uses Thermo-Mechanical Ablation (TMA), a non-laser treatment technology, to transfer thermal energy to the skin around the eyes quickly and safely. This method corrects dry eyes by increasing lubrication and reducing tear evaporation.
Tixel® treatment takes less than one minute in total. The effects of Tixel® are longer lasting than the use of eye drops.
Generally, Tixel® treatment involves only a little discomfort with little to no pain. It is non-invasive and there is no downtime – making it easy and convenient for all patients with symptoms of dry eye to get treatment.
In most cases, patients will need three Tixel® treatments, with an interval of two to three weeks between each treatment. In more severe cases, patients may require four treatments.
