Tear Duct OccluderTM is an FDA approved Rx only noninvasive device which is intended to temporarily occlude the nasolacrimal ducts in adult patients to help reduce outflow through the nasolacrimal ducts. Federal law restricts this device to sell by or on the order of a licensed eye care professional. The primary users of this device would be glaucoma, cataract and dry-eye patients,
Currently, performing manual nasolacrimal occlusion following eyedrop instillation has been well-advised in ophthalmology community for it will:
Maximize the benefits and Prevent bitter aftertaste from eyedrops.
Now, it has been clinically proven that Tear Duct Occluder can perform the same effectively, safely and more consistently.
Here are some of our patients said about Tear Duct Occluder:
“I do believe that the TDO is working for me! My pressures were lower than they have been in a long time at my last appointment. I use the device religiously, and will have my pressures checked again in a month…I do believe it is making a difference for me and provides reassurance that the drops are staying in my eyes.” – Kathy, Moultonborough, NH – user since 5/23/2017
“I use it faithfully twice a day since you offered it to me and so far have found that it has stabilized my IOP readings between 15-17. From a high of 36 we are quite pleased with the consistency. I would highly recommend your tear duct occluder to anyone with Glaucoma issues. The device also makes it much easier to comply with keeping the maximum efficacy of the eye drops for a full five minutes in the eyes. It’s been a marvelous invention and I truly thank you for it. For me it has delayed the drainage surgery that was my only other option.” – Barbara, North Smithfield, RI. – user since 5/30/2017
“It works very well. I do use it 50 percent of the time.” – Michael, Hopkinton, MA – user since 6/20/2017
“I use the device, probably, 80 percent of the time. Sometimes, it is impossible for social or time constraint reasons.
I put in (various) drops seven times a day, so you can imagine how difficult it is to always have privacy and time. I can’t be out to dinner and put your occluder on!! One of my eyes is being watched weekly, so I have had many pressure checks over the last two months and my pressures have remained constant. The eye that we are most worried about has not gone up or down.” – Debbie, Medfield, MA – user since 8/1/2017
“It does appear to be working for me. My wife usually puts the Azopt drops in because that one is quite expensive and I hate to miss my eye. It’s comfortable, easy to use and I would recommend it to other patients.” – Tony, Wrentham, MA – user since 8/15/2017
“Been using your device for a couple of weeks while traveling and am very pleased…It’s a wonderful device and convenient for putting in drops and maintaining dosage.” – William, Ashland, MA – user since 9/5/2017
