TrueTear™

Matossian Eye Associates was selected as the first practice in the greater Delaware Valley area to introduce TrueTear as part of its Certified Dry Eye Center of Excellence.

TrueTear™ is an FDA approved novel device to temporarily increase your own natural tear production with user-controllable neurostimulation.  TrueTear™ causes your eyes to produce natural tears using tiny pulses of energy with no pain whatsoever.  

  • The TrueTear™ tips stimulate a nerve in the nasal cavity with tiny pulses of energy, sending out nerve signals to the brain.

  • The brain then sends nerve signals to the tear glands surrounding the eyes to temporarily increase tear production.

  • The glands surrounding the eyes react and temporarily produce real tears.

For more information on TrueTear, please make an appointment with Cynthia Matossian, MD at Matossian Eye Associates (click here) to see if you can benefit from this new medical device.  You can also learn more about it by visiting information on Allergan's manufacturer's website.
