What does the Restasis doc think of Viva Drops?

If you think this face looks familiar – it’s probably because you  have seen it on TV. Dr. Allison Tendler is the spokesperson for Restasis®, the leading prescription drug used to treat dry eye. In the commercial she explains how Restasis® works.  However, what is most compelling about Dr. Tendler’s commercial is the fact that she is also a patient who useses Restasis®.   See:

One of our Amcon staffers, super sleuth, Amy F. got curious about who this woman was and if she is an actual optometrist or ophthalmologist.  It turns out, she is indeed a real ophthalmologist and her practice is very close to Dakota Labs in Mitchell, SD where we make our Viva Drops.

So why do we care about Restasis® and the Restasis® spokesperson?  Our product, Viva Drops has been shown to be just as effective – if not more than effective than Restasis®.  See: However, Viva Drops is much less expensive and can be purchased over-the-counter.

This caused us to wonder what Dr. Tendler thinks about Viva Drops?  Being that she lives just down the road from where they are made, she must know about them. But  we may have to send her some samples and find out.  Stay tuned.

  1. I would trust her too examine my eyes.
    She may have answers other than giving me eye glasses for increasingly blurred vision.

  2. hmm i wonder why she uses and recommends Restasis? could it be because they are paying her, which is probably helping her pay off the massive amount of student loans she has? pretty sure she doesnt care that your product works just as good, you arent paying her to represent your product, end of story
