Midland Eye is now offering revolutionary Tixel® treatment to help treat long-standing dry eye symptoms in patients.
Tixel® is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that can naturally enhance moisture levels and restore hydration to your 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. This can be due to age, eyelid problems, environmental factors or hormonal changes.
Tixel® is a new device that is used for dry eye treatment. It uses Thermo-Mechanical Ablation (TMA), a non-laser treatment technology, to transfer thermal energy to the skin around the eyes quickly and safely to correct dry eyes by increasing lubrication and reducing tear evaporation.
Tixel® treatment takes less than one minute and involves only a little discomfort with little to no pain. It is non-invasive and there is no downtime. The effects of Tixel® are longer lasting than the use of eye drops.
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.
