    Description (by Rebecca)

    I am not an eye drop salesperson, for sure. I can't begin to explain the science or technology of most drops, and I am not a "true believer" in any of them because we all know everyone has their favorites and different things work for different people. I decided to start stocking NanoTears because a lot of patients seem to like them, and, as with everything else, by selling them I find we can learn more about who seems to like them most and why. But I'll share what I know in the meantime:

    Advantage: COST EFFECTIVE! These vials contain 0.6mL of fluid. Most name brand drops are 0.4mL, so that's half again as much. The vial design is different than any other I've seen but I found it very user-friendly.

    Disadvantage: Not recappable. Boo! If you're going to re-use these, make sure you have someplace to store them safely where they won't get dirty. Shot-glass on your desk? Keep that tip clean and don't touch it to anything.

    When Ally and I were trying these out, as usual, we found we were opposites. I liked the runnier one (TF) and she liked the thicker one (MXP). Ally didn't like that it says "gel-drop" on the box, because they're not thick like, say, Celluvisc. 

    I actually tried this on top of my sclerals. I hate drops on my sclerals, no matter what drop, I just feel like they mess with my vision too much. And these weren't "great", but I have to say they were a lot better than I thought they'd be.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    NanoTears MXP FORTE Preservative Free Clear Emollient Lubricant Gel Drops is a unique innovation in Dry Eye Therapy. NanoTears contains Nanopids, tiny, clear soothing lipids that revitalize the eyes natural lubrication by restoring the lipid layer of tear film and providing a barrier to tear loss, without the blur associated with other drops.

    Open your eyes to the long-lasting hydration and soothing power of Nanopids with every drop of NanoTears MXP FORTE Preservative Free Clear Emollient Lubricant Gel Drops.

      NanoTears MXP FORTE are PRESERVATIVE FREE

      Nonpreserved artificial tears have an extra advantage over preserved ones. They may be the best choice for patients immediately following eye surgery (such as LASIK), because they are more comfortable to use, due to differences in the thickness and improved compatibility with the eye’s tissues. Preservative-free NanoTears TF eliminate the source of toxic irritation caused by preservatives.
