What is TrueTear®?

TrueTear device

TrueTear® is an FDA-approved prescription device that temporarily increases your natural tear production. Using a process called neurostimulation, the TrueTear® device painlessly sends tiny pulses of energy through the nasal cavity to stimulate the glands surrounding the eyes to produce basal tears.

How Does TrueTear Work®?

TrueTear® works by using a process called neurostimulation. The tip of the device is inserted through the nasal cavity and, when activated, painlessly stimulates the glands surrounding the eyes. The tiny pulses of energy generated by the devices send signals to the brain to produce your body’s own natural tears.

How often and how long do I need to use TrueTear®?

The device is capable of single-day use up to a limit of 30 minutes. Use longer than 3 minutes per session is not recommended, and the patient should wait for at least 60 minutes before inserting into the nose again. For most patients, using the device at least twice a day as needed is recommended.

Am I a good candidate for TrueTear®?

You are a good candidate for the TrueTear® device if you:

  • Are at least 22 years old
  • Have dry eye from inadequate tear production
  • Are able to use the Intranasal Tear Neurostimulator
  • Do not have a cardiac pacemaker, implanted or wearable defibrillator, or other implanted metallic or electronic device in the head or neck
  • Do not have a known hypersensitivity to the hydrogel material that contacts the nasal mucosa
  • Do not have chronic or recurrent nosebleeds, a bleeding disorder or another condition that can lead to increased bleeding¹
