TearRestore joins the national effort to encourage all Americans to schedule their annual eye exam. As May is Healthy Vision Month, the eye health community encourages everyone to schedule a comprehensive dilated eye exam to check for common eye problems.
CDC’s Vision Health Initiative partners with the National Eye Institute to encourage all Americans to make vision a health priority this Healthy Vision Month.
“To keep your eyes healthy, get a comprehensive dilated eye exam: an eye care professional will use drops to widen the pupils to check for common vision problems and eye diseases. It’s the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of any eye-related diseases,” states the CDC website. ”You can have a dilated eye exam regularly to check for common eye problems. If you haven’t had an exam for some time, schedule one this month.”
TearRestore is proud to amplify the efforts of the CDC and National Eye Institute to encourage the public to learn about eye health, healthy vision and low-cost eye care.
TearRestore agrees that in addition to your comprehensive dilated eye exams it is best to visit an eye care professional if you have:
- Decreased vision.
- Eye pain.
- Drainage or redness of the eye.
- Double vision.
- Floaters (tiny specks that appear to float before your eyes).
- Circles (halos) around light sources; or
- If you see flashes of light.
In addition to regular eye exams, TearRestore recommends home remedies to bring relief to common eye discomfort such as dry eyes and allergic reactions. TearRestore offers Thermal Mask & HylaWipes™ which are now available at Target stores nationwide and at Target.com for $39.99 and $18.99 respectively.
The TearRestore Thermal Mask is the first and only open-eye warm compress. The device offers dry eye sufferers consistent heat, the ability to see during treatment, and natural expression of the Meibomian Glands (blinking) throughout use. The mask recently received overwhelmingly positive results in a study conducted by the University of Colorado, including a 90% increase in tear break-up time, a 51% reduction in dry eye symptoms and 40% increase in functional meibomian glands.
The TearRestore HylaWipe™ Tea Tree Eyelid Wipe combines a mild concentration of tea tree leaf oil with premium moisturizing compounds. The result is a cleanser that removes debris/makeup, soothes irritation, and leaves you with visibly healthy eyes. The wipes contain an advanced formula of premium skin care ingredients and natural plant extracts, including hyaluronic acid, green tea extract, aloe, and chamomile. The wipes do not require any rinsing after use, making it convenient for use outside of the home.
TearRestore was born in 2020 in a graduate program at the University of Minnesota with the support of the National Science Foundation. Students working in an eye care clinic witnessed shortcomings associated with Dry Eye and created a solution. They used the stories of those affected most by the condition and developed a product that provided the patient’s relief.
The Company, with the advisement of industry leading clinicians, continues to develop products that put the patients’ needs first and has been awarded NSF honors for product innovations.
