The Technology behind True Tear™

  1. The True Tear™ device stimulates a nerve in the nasal cavity with tiny pulses of energy, sending nerve signal to the brain.

  2. The brain sends signals back to the tear glands causing a temporary increase in tear production.

  3. The glands react and produce real tears.
