TrueTear®is a neurostimulation device that emits micro-electric pulses to the nasal cavity to stimulate the lacrimal gland and the trigeminal nerve (Cranial Nerve V) to produce tears naturally. It’s the first dry eye treatment that results in immediate increase to tear production, and unlike eye drops, it does not involve any chemicals and their potential side effects. It is a treatment that can be used as needed for dry eye relief, leaving you in charge of control of your dry eye symptoms. The device is inserted into the nasal cavity just far enough to contact nasal mucus membrane with trigeminal nerve branches. To prevent risk of infection, the tip that contacts the nasal mucus is replaced regularly. Contact our office for a demonstration if you are interested in learning more about this exciting new technology.
