Earlier this year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first medical device for the treatment of dry eye. It's called TrueTear and it gives patients a new, drug free alternative to lubricating eye drops and topical ointments.
TrueTear is a handheld stimulator that comes with daily disposable tips that are inserted into the nose. The device stimulates nerves in the nose to produce tears. The reaction is like what occurs when you cut into an onion.
SkyVision Center doctor Darrell White has recommended True Tear for some of his patients. Dry Eye is an eye disease that has been receiving more and more attention because of the increasing number of patients who are seeking help for their discomfort. Dry Eye has many components to its diagnosis and treatment and patients can be helped in a variety of ways. True Tear may be a great solution for some. Dr. White and his team of doctors and staff have been treating Dry Eye for well over a decade and have earned the accreditation of a Dry Eye Center of Excellence.
