TrueTear™ is an FDA approved device to temporarily increase your own natural tear production using neurostimulation. TrueTear™ stimulates your tear glands to produce natural tears using small, painless pulses of energy.
- The TrueTear™ tips stimulate a nerve in the nasal cavity with tiny pulses of energy, sending out nerve signals to the brain.
- The brain then sends nerve signals to the tear glands surrounding the eyes to temporarily increase tear production.
- The glands surrounding the eyes react and temporarily produce real tears.
TrueTear is only sold by a limited number of eye doctors who specialize in the treatment of dry eyes.
