Dry eyes are quickly becoming a more common issue for consumers who spend long periods of time staring at computer screens or who have allergies, so the Allergan 'TrueTear' is positioned as a high-tech solution. The noninvasive device works by being inserted into the nostrils and using intelligent neurostimulation technology to stimulate nerve receptors. This will prompt the body to naturally produce tears in a matter of seconds to potentially eliminate the need for traditional eyedrops.
The Allergan 'TrueTear' is compact enough to be carried with the user with them throughout the day and features Bluetooth connectivity that will let users customize the functionality from their smartphone. The accompanying app will also let users adjust intensity levels, analyze usage data and more.
