Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated platelets and white blood cells produced through centrifugation of the patient’s own blood. At the time of the procedure, a small volume of blood is drawn from the patient via venipuncture. The blood sample is then concentrated via centrifugation. Upon concentration, the platelets are removed and prepared for eye drops.
In our experience, we have found that patients who have been unable to obtain relief through other methods may have success with this treatment. The treatment is very safe and effective for the treatment of chronic and symptomatic Dry Eye Syndrome. Other indications for the use of Autologous PRP Eye Drops may include Ulcers and Ocular Surface Syndrome Post LASIK.
