Using PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) to Relieve Symptoms of Dry Eyes

Dr. Grant Pagdin at Pagdin Health discusses an exciting technology that we have developed to help with dry eyes and recurrent corneal ulcers. Normally, these patients have to apply lubricating drop to the eye frequently to ease their symptoms. Instead, what we do is draw some blood and prepare an extract of platelets called platelet-rich plasma or PRP.

Platelets are full of all kinds of growth factors that have incredible healing properties and are very effective in alleviating the symptoms of dry eyes and recurrent corneal ulcers. You apply one drop two to three times a day for 12 weeks.
