Due you suffer from dry eye due to inadequate tear production? The Eye Center is thrilled to announce we are the first practice in Columbia, SC to offer the new dry eye device, TrueTearⓇ.
TrueTearⓇ is a drop-free, gel-free, drug-free option to temporarily increase tear production through neurostimulation. With the TrueTearⓇ device, you can stimulate natural tear production anytime you need it (recommended use twice daily). TrueTearⓇ reduces the need for regular appointments to treat dry eye and can be used at your convenience anytime at home or on-the-go.
TrueTearⓇ’s state-of-the-art technology in eye care is an easy-to-use, rechargeable, handheld device with a disposable tip that is inserted through the nose for neurostimulation. The device sends pulses of energy to activate a nerve in the eye through nerves located in the bridge of your nose. The tear glands are activated and begin to produce tears naturally. You’ll probably feel a tingling or ticklish sensation in the nose, depending on the strength setting you’ve chosen on the device.
TrueTearⓇ works quickly and puts you in control to manage your dry eye symptoms in less than two minutes a day! Download the TrueTearⓇ app to check your device’s battery level, track usage and intensity levels.
Potential side effects of TrueTearⓇ include discomfort or pain and/or burning sensation in the nose. Most side effects are short-lived, but if you experience worsening or persistent discomfort, talk to your eye doctor.
Before you can purchase TrueTearⓇ by Allergan, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with your ophthalmologist for a prescription. Once you’ve purchased the device, you have complete freedom to treat your dry eyes as needed.
