Dry Eye PRP® Q & A

 

What is Dry Eye PRP® therapy?

There are a number of studies supporting the use of platelet rich plasma PRP to regrow nerves, blood vessels and other tissues in and around the eye. Several have been done in patients who have been found to not be producing enough tears. This can be done with injections into the lacrimal gland (this is a gland near the eye that produces tears) or administering PRP eye drops or both.

What are the side effects?

To date none have been reported in our search of the literature and in our experience.

Can this be used with other therapies?

Yes, artificial tears, prescription medications, IPL and Radiofrequecy devices and hormone enhancements can be used in conjunction.

What can I expect from PRP dry eye treatments?

Patients report steady improvement over the course of treatment. Typically, treatment will be broken into 3 sessions separated by 30 days. It can be injections alone, injections and eyedrops or eyedrops alone. It can also include adjunctive therapies such as over the counter or prescription medications and even treatments of the Meibomian Gland (the gland at the eyelids) that can also be a contributor to dry eye symptoms.
