Allergan has been granted marketing authorization by the FDA for TrueTear, the first Intranasal Tear Neurostimulator. TrueTear is a handheld stimulator with daily disposable tips that is inserted into the nasal cavity. It delivers an effective and non-invasive way to temporarily increase tear production without the use of drugs. There have been two clinical studies showing positive safety and effectiveness of the device in the increase of tear production completed with 145 aqueous deficient dry eye adult patients.
