Book an Appointment

MOA is among the first eye care centers in the country to offer Tyrvaya, a new FDA-approved nasal spray designed to stimulate natural tear production and offer relief for Dry Eye sufferers
If you suffer from Dry Eye, you know that drops are often part of the equation to managing the disease, but they can be a major hassle.

“Tryvaya is being touted as a ‘drop free’ alternative for people living with Dry Eye,” said Dr. O’Dell. “Many of my patients experience challenges with administering eye drops. This new mode of stimulating tear glands with a nasal spray, will offer more consistent dosage and the promise of better results for patients seeking new treatment modalities for Dry Eye.”

Dr. Leslie O’Dell, FAAO is an international thought leader in the Dry Eye space and is excited to have Tyrvaya as a new tool in her toolbox to help the hundreds of Dry Eye patients she sees each year. She recently presented new research on the effectiveness of Tyrvaya at the American Academy of Optometry meeting in November in Boston and will do so again at the American Optometric Association meeting coming up in June in Chicago. MOA’s Medical Optometrists continue to lead and present peer-reviewed research involving new testing and treatment options for Dry Eye. 

Dr. O’Dell was also a featured guest on the Dry Eye podcast, To the Point, discussing Tyrvaya. You can listen to it that broadcast by clicking on this link.
