Platelet-rich plasma for dry eyes
An estimated 4.66 million Americans are reported to experience the condition known as dry eye syndrome or DES.
Patients with DES often report that their eyes feel itchy, dry and even feel as though “they have rocks in them.” Some people with DES have a sensitivity to light and an inability to open their eyes wide enough to make eye contact.
PRP is comprised of the natural healing ingredients from your own blood. When processed properly, it becomes concentrated and has an amazing ability to treat dry eyes.
We create PRP drops in three simple steps:
The patient comes in and we draw a small amount of their blood which we refine to create a high concentration of growth factors, platelets and other healing ingredients.
We take these concentrated, naturally-produced ingredients and create a three month supply of eye drops in sterile containers. The PRP drops are created in less than one hour.
After paying a very reasonable fee, the patient takes the sterile containers home. The drops are stored in the freezer to keep them fresh and one weekly vial is kept refrigerated for use.
The patient’s own healing constituents are the ingredients that make the drops so effective. This is the most natural way to treat dry eye syndrome.
