TrueTear® (for Dry Eye)
What is Dry Eye?
Your eyes produce the right type of tears, or tear film, in order to remain healthy and comfortable. Sometimes, a person’s eyes stop producing these tears, resulting in something called “dry eye”.
Did you know that in the United States dry eye is a common condition, most often affecting people who are middle-aged and older? In fact, it is estimated that 4.88 million Americans from 50 and older have dry eyes.
Dry eye has a variety of symptoms, including burning, redness, foreign body sensation and even fluctuating blurring of vision.
