    TheraTears: Therapy for your eyes™ - Lubricating Eye Drops in single use Ampules

    The TheraTears line of dry eye products was developed in the clinics and laboratories of the renowned Schepens Eye Research Institute by pioneering ophthalmologist, Jeffrey P. Gilbard, MD. The Schepens Eye Research Institute, located in Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the world’s leading eye research facilities. It is the largest nonprofit institution in the world dedicated to the fight against blinding and painful eye conditions.

    Dry eye is a result of a loss of water from the tears on the eye surface that makes the tears too salty or “hyper-osmotic.” Hypo-osmotic TheraTears Lubricant Eye Drops help put back the lost water, lowering the high salt concentration, so that they are not only wet but also rehydrate dry eyes. We call this “osmo-correction”.
    In addition the tears are an electrolyte solution specially designed to protect the eye surface. With TheraTears we replicated and patented the electrolyte balance of the human tear film so that each drop of every TheraTears Lubricant Eye Drops provides the special salt balance and the electrolyte balance, needed for the health of the eye surface.
