Dry Eye Disease (DED)
Dry eyes and other ocular surface disorders occur when you cannot produce enough lubricating tears to keep your eyes moisturized. Dry eyes are uncomfortable and can lead to serious vision changes or eye damage if left untreated.
The symptoms of dry eyes include:
- Light sensitivity
- Blurry vision
- Scratchy or feeling like something is in the eye
This condition is quite common, affecting 1 out of 10 adult Americans. Some people are more prone to dry eyes, including women, people over 50 years old, wearers of contact lenses, and individuals with vitamin A or omega-3 deficiencies.
WeCare Pharmacy offers several compound preparations to treat your dry eyes and keep you comfortable, including serum eye drops and prescription medications.
Autologous Serum Eye Drops
Many medical conditions can cause ocular surface disorders, and a newly emerging therapy is proving to be an effective treatment for dry and damaged eyes.
Autologous serum is a blood-derived product created especially for each patient by isolating their own nutrient-rich plasma from blood samples, diluting it with sterile saline, and bottling it for use. The proteins and growth hormones found in these drops heal the eye’s outer surface while simultaneously lubricating and relieving acute symptoms of dry eyes.
Because autologous serum drops are composed of your unique proteins, hormones, and electrolytes, they are nearly identical to the tears naturally produced by your body and are more effective than artificial tears purchased over the counter.
