Updated October 2017. This is an updated version of a similar kit, but with two sets of Thermoeyes Instants instead of one, for the same price. Handier, because Thermoeyes Instants have to be boiled after use to reset them, and this way at least you get two applications before having to deal with the boiling part.
Tranquileyes XL with Thermoeyes 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 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
Tranquileyes with Thermoeyes meets most criteria for most users. Eye doctors tend to be familiar with it, which is an advantage. This version is self-heating with predetermined heat levels for increased safety. You can use it wet or dry. The heat packs stay warm long enough for a typical treatment time.
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. They each have their advantages. Instants are the safest, though, because they self-heat to a controlled temperature, so you cannot hurt yourself by overheating them, as you can with microwaved compresses.
Description (from the manufacturer's literature)
Our new tranquileyes xl® with Instants provides at least 300 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)
To prepare moist-heat therapies, simply activate the Instants by clicking the disc inside the gel pack back and forth until it starts generating heat. Place Instants inside moistened fabric pockets and into the back of the goggle. Don’t forget to boil the gel packs after each use for 2-3 minutes to reset them.
For cold treatments, insert Instants with pockets into the back of the goggle. Place the goggle in a self-sealing plastic bag and leave in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
You can also sleep with the goggle and moisten the black foam inserts to increase humidity around the 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.
