TheraTears EXTRA® Dry Eye Therapy

Lubricant Eye Drops

HARNESS EXTRA POWER FROM A NATURAL WONDER

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.

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 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

THE FIRST FDA-ACCEPTED ANTIMICROBIAL EYELID CLEANSER

  • Advanced Hypochlorous Acid (0.01%) formula
  • Cleanses away bacteria

A POWERFUL NATURAL INGREDIENT

Hypochlorous acid is an organic substance that occurs naturally in the body. It is produced in neutrophils, functioning as an antimicrobial agent that destroys bacteria and serves as an important part of the immune system.

TheraTears® SteriLid® Antimicrobial Eyelid Cleanser and Facial Wash uses the power of hypochlorous acid to provide key eyelid hygiene advantages:

EFFECTIVENESS

Antimicrobial capabilities effectively and quickly eliminate microoganisms from the eyelids and lashes

TOLERABILITY

Low toxicity and a pH balanced formula prevent irritation of the delicate skin of the eyelid or eyelid margin

PATIENT SATISFACTION

Patients will be happy to use an organic substance rather than a harsh, unnatural facial wash

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.

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

CRITICAL FIRST STEPS TO TREATING DRY EYE SYMPTOMS INCLUDE OCULAR LUBRICANTS, LID HYGIENE AND DIETARY MODIFICATIONS SUCH AS ORAL FATTY ACID SUPPLEMENTATION1.
