Description (by Rebecca)
Tranquileyes XL with Thermoeyes inserts is a lovely, luxurious and comfy way to do either warm or cold moist compresses. With Blepharitis and MGD as leading causes of dry eye symptoms, dry eye patients are often advised by their doctors to do some kind of warm compresses regularly for therapeutic benefits, and many do them solely for comfort. Cold compresses are an under utilized tool but often beneficial for reducing eye pain, soreness, redness and inflammation.
There are many, many ways to do warm compresses, from the conventional warm washcloth to rice baggies to gel and bead type packs. Your choice of compress may be affected by any number of factors, including:
- Your doctor's recommendation, first and foremost
- Skin sensitivities to particular substances
- Compress size - for example, people with facial rosacea will want smaller compresses that don't heat skin on the face, only the eyelids
- Duration - if used therapeutically, compresses need to stay warm enough for long enough to do the job
- Safety - overheated products may burn your lids and eyes
- Moist vs dry - opinions will vary as to how much this matters, and preferences vary as well
Thermoeyes inserts are available in two different types: Beads, which are heated in warm water (you can microwave them in water, though not on their own), and Instant, which are self-heating like hand warmers but which have to be boiled afterwards to reset them. So it's all about what's most convenient for you.
Description (from the manufacturer's literature)
Our new tranquileyes xl® with Beads provides at least 120 controlled moist-heat treatments, scientifically proven to provide relief from severe dry eye*.
Our patented tranquileyes xl® delivers the most natural and effective moist-heat home treatment for severe dry eye on the market. The system combines the goggle, reusable gel packs, and water to create 20 to 25 minutes of optimum temperature and humidity, scientifically proven to loosen oils in the Meibomian glands and relieve symptoms. Clogged glands are the number one contributor to severe evaporative dry eye (MGD). The larger XL uses gel packs 30% larger than tranquileyes®, allowing for an extended compress duration, required for severe MGD. Use tranquileyes xl® for immediate and long-term relief from severe dry eye, MGD or blepharitis.
Resting over the orbital bones, the XL moist-heat promotes circulation and speeds heat transfer, delivering controlled temperature between 102-110°F degrees.
The XL is also used to create cold therapies for managing eyelid and under-eye puffiness, inflammation and ocular allergies.
Made in USA.
Usage and care
How to use
From the manufacturer's literature:
For moist-heat treatments, remove black foam inserts from tranquileyes xl® goggles and put aside. Place net bag with pocketed Beads into 2 cups of drinking water and microwave for 90 seconds. Let stand for 1 minute. Carefully remove pocketed Beads from the net and into back of goggle.
For cold treatments, remove black foam inserts from back of goggle and put aside. Remove pocketed Beads from net bag, moisten with drinking water and place into back of goggle. Place goggle into self-sealing plastic bag and freeze for 15-20 minutes. Remove goggle with pocketed Beads from plastic bag and place over eyes.
From the manufacturer's literature:
Hand wash black foam inserts and white fabric pockets with mild soap and warm water after each use. Rinse well, squeeze out extra moisture and air dry in enclosed mesh bag. Wash plastic eye covers with foam attached in the same way, as needed. Foam (outer cushion and inner pad) should be replaced periodically.
