Organic Tears are formulated using only three ingredients – organic glycerin (oil from organic vegetables), salt and water – and are extremely refreshing to dry eyes. A new technology allows for each bottle to dispense more than 250 drops of Organic Tears, providing a cost and convenience advantage over other preservative-free artificial tears found in single-use vials. The product is offered in the 10 ml size for $29.00.
“Dry eye is a multifaceted and complex condition that’s becoming increasingly common. We’ve now added another high-quality, scientifically formulated product to Avenova.com that further reinforces our website as a one-stop designation for customers seeking relief from the symptoms of dry eye,” said Justin Hall, NovaBay CEO. “This product fills a need in our product assortment by offering a preservative free dry eye drop. Our partnership with Eyeganics is the first of what we hope will be other highly effective ophthalmic products added to our distribution channels.”
“As a practicing eye doctor, I talk to a lot of patients about what eye drops they use,” said Eyeganics founder and CEO Dan Friederich, OD, FAAO. “I developed this product with all natural ingredients to address the needs of patients affected by some chemicals that may be found in other artificial tears. I’m delighted to partner on this opportunity and to associate Organic Tears with the high-quality products available on Avenova.com.”
