TrueTear – FDA Approved Dry Eye Disease Device

Solinsky EyeCare is among the first to offer the newest FDA approved Dry Eye Disease Device to it’s patients. In March 2017, Solinsky EyeCare was one of 60 premier dry eye practices from around the country to participate in the launch of True Tear. Solinsky EyeCare is excited to help our patients with this product.

TrueTear is the latest in cutting edge technology for the treatment and management of Dry Eye Disease. It is a treatment that is unlike any other to date. Until now, eyecare doctors have been limited to using supportive treatments, supplements, drugs and/ or procedures to help manage Dry Eye Disease. True Tear uses a totally new treatment strategy called Neurostimulation to address Dry Eye Disease. The device was just FDA approved in April, 2017 and, because of our leadership in the treatment of Dry Eye Disease, the doctors at Solinsky Eyecare have been chosen to be among the very first doctors to prescribe it.

The neurostimulation approach with TrueTear is a proven technology that is used in well known devices like pacemakers, cochlear implants and TENS Devices for chronic back pain. TrueTear is the first and only neurostimulation device for the treatment of Dry Eye Disease and is FDA approved to safely stimulate the nerves that supply the Lacrimal Function Unit (LFU); which is the part of your eyes that supplies the natural, healthy tears that keeps our eyes moist, comfortable and clear.

The LFU is very complex, with multiple components and parts that can become damaged and breakdown in the Dry Eye Disease cycle. Past Dry Eye treatments usually focus on helping one or a few of the damaged parts only, but TrueTear has the ability to help the entire LFU naturally. It does this in a drug free way that basically turns your eyes natural tear system back on.

TrueTear may replace some previous treatments, and will certainly enhance the effects of all Dry Eye Disease treatments and may improve patients who have reached a plateau or a block in their current treatments.
