Tips for optimal treatment with Rexon-Eye®
It is well known that dry eye is a multifactorial disease.
Alongside a pathological or genetic basis, the incidence of environmental and psychophysical factors on the severity of symptoms is well known.
That’s why with a regenerative therapy such as Rexon-Eye®, we believe it is necessary to create the best environmental conditions for the success of the treatment.
Although many patients report an immediate benefit just after the first session, the action of Rexon-Eye® requires a physiological time for reactivating the cells and the body as well needs to be prepared for the healing process, to obtain effective and long-lasting results.
Therefore we believe that a relaxed atmosphere in a reserved and calm place is a key factor in ensuring your patients the maximum results from the treatment.
In this page, we’ve gathered some tips and useful information to create the most suitable environment for the treatment.
Main aspects of the treatment
Rexon-Eye® is a non-invasive therapy that does not cause any pain or discomfort. It does not require analgesics or cooling systems on the skin (e.g., gel).
During the treatment, patients only experience a slight and pleasant sensation of warmth underneath the mask.
Resono Ophthalmic is not aware of any trauma or physical damage that may be caused by the Rexon-Eye® usage.
Patients excluded from the treatment:
● pregnant women
● patients with implanted active medical devices (e.g., pacemakers or hearing aids)
● infants or children (under 18 years)
● patients undertaking cancer therapy
● patients who underwent ocular surgery in the last month

To create a well-being environment
We suggest setting up in your clinic a special area reserved for the treatment, following these indications:
find a space suitable for the Rexon-Eye® treatment, quiet and possibly isolated from the other activities of the clinic
use for treatment a comfortable reclining chair, where the patient may feel relaxed
ensure warm lighting with a soft and wide shade
Before starting the treatment
Make sure to place the mask with uniform contact over the eyes, without exerting high pressure
Lower the brightness of the light sources
Within this environment, the session can be even more pleasant and relaxing with some simple expedients
Set up an audio system connected to a computer
to listen to an introduction and treatment audio guide.
The audio content is designed to inform the patient and guide her/him along the therapeutic process.
The audio lasts 3 minutes.
After playing the audio guide, we suggest creating a soft musical background.
The most suitable genres for relaxation that we recommend:
Smooth & Cool Jazz – Meditative – Chill Lounge – Soul – Ambient
Online channels and platforms offering these genres
Essences for a relaxing atmosphere
It is also possible to create a more comfortable environment with aromatherapy.
LAVENDER – antiseptic and anti-inflammatory with sedative and analgesic properties
SANDAL – relaxing, reduces stress and has antiseptic properties
JASMINE – analgesic, relieves tension and anxiety
CHAMOMILE – soothing, relaxing, useful against insomnia, antispasmodic
At the end of the session
At the end of the treatment, after removing the mask, the patient should remain for a few minutes sitting with her/his eyes still closed and gradually open them up.
Increase the intensity of the light to allow the eyes to get used to the brightness and avoid a slight discomfort that can occur due to the pressure of the mask on the eyes.
