INTRODUCING THERATEARS® EXTRA DRY EYE THERAPY

Lubricant Eye Drops

HARNESS EXTRA POWER FROM A NATURAL WONDER

NEW TheraTears® EXTRA dry eye therapy’s extra moisturizing formula is enhanced with trehalose to:

✓ Rehydrate tear film
✓ Protect from further irritation
✓ Support the homeostasis of tear film

Trehalose is a natural disaccharide with enhanced moisture retention capabilities.1

Trehalose is found in micro-organisms, insects and certain plants, such as the Rose of Jericho, which are native to desert regions of the world. The Rose of Jericho can survive in a dormant state for years without water. Thanks to the power of trehalose, it comes back to life when re-exposed to water.
View our time lapsed video of the Rose of Jericho and experience the magic of trehalose for yourself!

How does trehalose work?

  • Maintains cell membrane and protein integrity during drying and rehydration
  • Protects cell membranes and proteins from denaturation and disruption in the absence of water

How is trehalose used?

  • To enhance the effectiveness of active ingredients
  • In the U.S. as an excipient in at least four injectable pharmaceuticals2
  • As a protectant for in vitro fertilization, plasma transfusions, cosmetics and processed foods

In ophthalmic products, trehalose enhances active ingredients to help1:

  • Protect corneal cells from desiccation
  • Restore osmotic balance to the ocular surface
  • Maintain the homeostasis of corneal cells

THERATEARS® DRY EYE THERAPY
RESTORES EYES NATURAL BALANCE®

Regardless of the cause of Dry Eye Disease, whether from aqueous deficiency or tear evaporation, the result is the same: increased tear film osmolarity, or hyperosmolarity.

Increased tear osmolarity = dry eyes

As defined in the 2017 DEWS II Report, dry eye is a multifactorial disease of the ocular surface characterized by a loss of homeostasis of the tear film, and accompanied by ocular symptoms, in which tear film instability and hyperosmolarity, ocular surface inflammation and damage, and neurosensory abnormalities play etiological roles.1

  • Homeostasis is the tendency toward a relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, especially as maintained by physiological processes
  • Elevated tear osmolarity (or hyperosmolarity) is the increased salt concentration in the tears
  • Increased tear film osmolarity causes dry eye irritation and ocular surface inflammation
Normal tear vs hyperosmolarity

Critical first steps to treating dry eye symptoms include ocular lubricants, lid hygiene and dietary modifications such as oral fatty acid supplementation.1
