Patients suffering with severe dry eyes may not produce enough tears to remain comfortable, and supplementing natural tear production with artificial tears or lubricants is often inadequate.
Many people have underlying medical issues which cause or worsen dry eye, including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and thyroid disease. Others take medications which diminish tear production. The use of autologous serum in the form of eye drops has been reported as a new option for ocular surface disorders.
