Autologous Serum Eye Drops

Autologous serum eyedrops are often requested when patients have not had success with various treatments for chronic dry eyes. Their own serum is used to make their eyedrops.

How Autologous Serum Eyedrops Work

Conventional therapies for severe dry eyes fail to heal the epithelial cells, which are the cells on the top layer of the cornea. The dry epithelial cells sometimes fall off of the cornea easily. Autologous serum comes from the patient’s own blood serum and plasma (Source: clevelandclinic.org). 

The fluid contains epithelium-promoting growth factors  and becomes a good replacement for tears

Sjogren’s Syndrome is an inflammatory condition in which the mucous membranes, especially in the nose and mouth become very dry. Sometimes you will see this in patients who have rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. 

Autologous serum eyedrops (ASED) are thought to contain various growth factors and nutrients from the serum that benefit the surface of the eye and may help with corneal epithelial defects. Serum contains albumin, vitamin A, and nerve and epidermal growth factors that may promote healthy growth and healing of the ocular surface. These nutrients are not in over-the-counter artificial tears preparations. 

They are sometimes used by doctors with patients with neuropathic eye pain, keratitis and may also be used before and after certain high-risk corneal transplants and SLET procedures, or for post-vitrectomy diabetics.
