What are PRP Eye Drops?
Unlike traditional eye drops which are usually made from a combination of synthetic ingredients, PRP eye drops are created from the patient’s own blood.
This makes them 100% natural, preservative-free, and free from harmful additives that can negatively impact eye health.
These drops are designed to promote healing and reduce inflammation, which can provide relief from a variety of eye conditions.
How are PRP Eye Drops Made?
PRP eye drops are created using a small sample of blood from the patient. This sample is then processed in a centrifuge which separates the platelets from the other components of the blood.
The solution created from this process is filtered and made into eye drops which are administered in the eye.
What are the Benefits of PRP Eye Drops?
PRP eye drops contain platelets (cells found in the blood), which are abundant in growth factors and other healing compounds. They trigger the body’s natural healing response and when used in the eyes, offer a number of benefits, including:
PRP eye drops are rich in growth factors and compounds that heal, which helps with reducing inflammation in the eyes. This offers relief from conditions such as dry eye and conjunctivitis, which are often identified by symptoms such as redness, swelling, and irritation.
PRP eye drops stimulate the body’s natural healing response and this promotes the growth of healthy new tissue in the eyes. This is especially beneficial for patients whose eyes have been damaged by injuries, infections, and other conditions.
Improves Blood Flow
These innovative eye drops improve blood flow in the eyes, which boosts eye health. This is because increased blood flow nourishes the eyes with oxygen and nutrients, reducing the risk of age-related eye conditions.
Offers Relief from Eye Conditions
PRP eye drops have been proven to be effective in the treatment of eye conditions such as dry eye, conjunctivitis, and corneal ulcers. They can also be used by people without any eye issues as a preventative measure.
Natural and Safe
Because they’re made from the patient’s own blood, they’re a completely natural and safe treatment option. This eliminates the risk of complications caused by allergies, preservatives, and harmful additives.
