TrueTear™

TrueTear™

Do you suffer from dry eye? TrueTear® may be the solution for you. TrueTear® provides temporary relief from dry eye through the increased production of natural tears. TrueTear® is a user-controlled device that increases tear production through neurostimulation. This is a drug-free and drop free option for relieving dry eye. You set the pulse level of the TrueTear® device and the pulses tell your brain to produce more tears.

How do I use TrueTear®?

Insert the disposable tip into your nose towards the bridge as far as comfortable. Then tilt the base of the TrueTear® device towards your mouth, with the tip of the TrueTear® device pressing against the inside of your nose. Hold this position until you feel tears forming in your eyes, do not hold for longer than one minute. Clean the tip after use. You are now done using the TrueTear® device.

How often do I use TrueTear®?

TrueTear® is to be used twice a day! You can track your device use on the TrueTear® app available in the app store.

Who can use TrueTear®?

Those with dry eye due to lack of tear production, who are over the age of 22 are candidates for TrueTear® use.

What does the device feel like?

TrueTear® users report a tingling or tickling sensation. Some feel the sensation of a sneeze coming on.
