When your eyes are burning, red, itchy, and irritated, the last thing you want is a complicated solution that does more harm than good. Perhaps you’ve heard the recent news of people who have been negatively affected by eye drops, eye drops that were supposed to help relieve symptoms.
Unfortunately, for these people, the eye drops caused severe complications including blindness, eye removal, and death. One thing was for sure, none of the eye drops were serum tears as serum tears are a safe, sterile, and natural way to treat dry eye conditions without harmful side effects.
What are autologous serum tears?
Autologous serum tears are drops made from your own blood serum and function like natural tears to provide soothing relief for dry eye and other conditions. Ophthalmologists and optometrists have prescribed autologous serum tears for over 30 years to treat dry eye disorders including, but not limited to:
- Neurotrophic keratopathy
- Persistent epithelial defects
- Exposure keratopathy
- Patients on chronic glaucoma drops
- Pre/post-surgical (cataract surgery, LASIK, etc.)
- Dry eye syndrome
ARCpoint’s serum tears are produced by using the PALA™ Kit, a patent-pending technology that enables our clinicians to process the blood serum in a terminally sterile closed system. Requiring far fewer steps compared to preparation under a traditional laminar hood method, the PALA™ Kit ensures your serum tears meet the highest quality standards.
The PALA™ Kit also enables us to process the serum tears on-site at a local ARCpoint Labs office, avoiding the costs, delays, and stability issues that come with having to ship your blood. Your serum tears will typically be available the same day and at an affordable price compared to many prescription eye drops.
Also, we do not require insurance and we accept HSA/FSA payments, or we will provide a detailed receipt for you to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Please note that we will need a doctor’s prescription to make your serum tears.
Our mission is to provide affordable, safe, and convenient autologous serum eye drops anywhere and anytime for all patients who need them.Book Your Appointment Now!
