Dry eye syndrome, also known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca in medical terminology, is characterized by insufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Adequate tear production is essential for clear vision and maintaining eye health. Dry eye can occur when the eyes do not produce enough tears or when tears evaporate too quickly. It is a common condition resulting in irritation and inflammation.

Dry eye can manifest with various symptoms and syndromes, including: 

  • Sensation of burning or stinging in the eyes
  • Gritty or sandy feeling in the eyes
  • Redness and irritation in the eyes
  • Blurred vision
  • Increased sensitivity to light
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses

External factors such as aging, intense medication use, allergies, environmental conditions, and medical conditions like Sjögren's syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis can contribute to the development of dry eye. Aging leads to a tendency for the tear glands to produce less tear fluid. Environmental factors like dry air, wind, and smoke can also contribute to dry eyes. Chronic use of certain medications or medical conditions can harm the tear glands, reducing tear production. Additionally, allergies to pollen, fur, and dust can contribute to dry eye. If you are experiencing chronic dry eye or intense symptoms like burning and stinging, it is advisable to consult with an eye doctor or specialist to identify the factors causing dry eye.     

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a regenerative treatment that utilizes the patient's own blood to support healing. PRP is rich in growth factors that stimulate cell growth and repair. Studies have shown the effectiveness of PRP in treating various conditions, including dry eye.

PRP eye drops, obtained from the patient's own blood, are prepared similarly to other PRP applications. Platelets are separated from other blood cells through centrifugation, and the concentrated platelets are mixed with a base solution to create PRP eye drops. 

Studies indicate that PRP eye drops can be an effective treatment for moderate to severe dry eye. While PRP eye drops are generally well-tolerated, careful post-treatment observation is crucial to minimize the risk of irritation or infection. 

RP eye drops are topically applied to the eyes six times a day for six weeks. PRP treatment helps increase tear production, reduce inflammation, and support the healing of the damaged corneal surface.

Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Eye Drop Treatment for Dry Eye

Does PRP Benefit Dry Eye?

In dry eye, the ocular surface tissue undergoes damage, leading to a stinging sensation every time the patient blinks. PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) is rich in growth factors, cytokines, and albumin, supporting the healing of ocular tissue damage. PRP induces improvement in the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. For dry eye treatment, PRP is formulated into a solution and topically applied to the eye, creating a moist environment. PRP eye drops not only serve as a lubricant but also provide several essential nutrients found in human tears to aid in the healing of damaged corneal epithelium. With its autologous nature and absence of additives, PRP eye drops represent a personalized and minimally risky treatment method for the patient. 

How is PRP Applied for Dry Eye?
