The Rexon-Eye Dry Eye Treatment is the newest dry eye innovation that uses electric stimulation to treat patients affected with dry eye disease, aqueous deficient as well as meibomian gland dysfunction. Rexon-Eye uses the innovative patented Quantum Molecular Resonance (QMR) to stimulate the tear production system and improve the activity of glandular tissues involved. The treatment stimulates the regeneration of the tear producing lacrimal gland and oil producing meibomian glands, which increases the volume and quality of the natural tears and re-balances the tear film to keep the eyes hydrated.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
The treatment has been clinically proven to stabilise the tear film, increase tear production and improve dry eye symptoms via regeneration of the cells responsible for producing tears. The treatment can help stop the atrophy of meibomian glands as they are crucial in the preservation of your tears, which protect your vision and eye health into the future. It will ensure your lacrimal glands are producing and delivering the natural tears that your eyes need to stay hydrated and healthy.
What does the treatment involve?
Rexon-Eye treatment is delivered by a contact electrode built in a mask, worn by the patient over closed eyes. During treatment, the patient experiences a slight and pleasant sensation of heat in the area of skin underneath the mask. Treatment is comfortable and relaxing for the patient.
How many treatments do I need?
Treatments are dependent on the severity of dry eye disease the patient may have, but typically 4 treatments over 4 weeks gives great relief for many patients. Your optometrist will re-assess your dry eye 6 weeks post treatment and advise if additional treatments are required.
When will I feel a difference after treatment?
The Rexon-Eye Dry Eye Treatment works by regenerating cells in the lacrimal and meibomian glands to stimulate the production of healthy tears, this regeneration process takes time and continues to occur even after the treatment. The patient response to the treatment is characterised by individual variability. Dry eye symptoms usually take 4-8 weeks from the end of the last treatment to improve. Some patients exhibit an improvement in their dry eye after just one session and some others have to wait longer for the treatment to start the regeneration process.
How long does the treatment last?
Treatments have been shown to give lasting relief, however some patients may require re-treatment depending on the severity of their dry eye disease.
