Speaker – Eileen
My name is Eileen. I'm a proud mother and grandmother, a former business owner, NFL cheerleader, and current alumni board member, and I use Tyrvaya to manage my dry eye symptoms.
I started experiencing my dry eye symptoms four or five years ago. It affected both eyes, but it was particularly bad in my right eye. Literally, sometimes felt like it was glued shut. I could not open it. I had dryness and I had pain. So, I went to my eye doctor and he told me that I should try the artificial tears. And of course, they always say it's your age. I always get that now when something's wrong. They always say it's your age. I'm very lucky that I don't have a lot of medical problems. So, when somebody says it's my age, I feel like there's got to be something else I can do.
So, at night I would put the bottle of artificial tears by my night table. I would wake up with pain and dryness and have to put the artificial drops in several times during the night. But the relief only lasted a couple hours, and then I would wake up and have to put them in again.
My eye doctor told me about Tyrvaya, and he said it was a nasal spray and I was very surprised. Did not expect a nasal spray for my dry eyes. It was something that I was absolutely willing to try and using it twice a day was very convenient for me. I noticed a difference within a few days. My eyes were producing more tears. They weren't dry, I didn't feel like they were as pasty, and I felt that they were less uncomfortable than they were. They started kind of getting back to normal, which is what I was looking for.
With Tyrvaya, my dry eyes felt much better, and it was a relief not to have to think about my dry eye symptoms. This is my Tyrvaya experience. Your experience may be different.

My doctor told me that the most common side effects of Tyrvaya include sneezing, cough, and throat and nose irritation.
He reminded me that Tyrvaya is for use in the nose and told me not to shake the bottles.
