Tixel® Dry Eyes treatment is the latest technology adopted at The EyeClinic for the treament of dry eyes. It utilises Thermo-Mechanical Ablation TMA® – a non-laser treatment technology that transfers thermal energy to the skin around the eyes quickly and safely to correct dry eyes by resolving meibomitis (link of meibomitis ) and improving the tear film. This treats the dry eye at its root where eye drops only bring temporal relief.
The 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 are longer lasting versus the use of eye drops.
In most cases, two to three sessions are necessary, four in case of severe eye dryness, with intervals of two to three weeks. Most of the patients notice a significant improvement right after the first session.
