Your Blood, Your Tears… No Sweat!
Your tears are complex in nature and crucial to eye health. Unfortunately, patients with severe dry may just 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. In many cases, there may not be a “quick fix” for the problem. At Dean S. Steinberger OD in Westlake Village, we work to find relief for patients with dry eye and to prevent long term damage to the ocular surface resulting from a lack of tear production.
Dean S. Steinberger OD PC has contracted with a local Westlake Village, CA laboratory and compounding pharmacy to easily and efficiently draw your blood and process it into usable eye drops in the same day. After the blood sample is obtained, you transport it to the nearby pharmacy along with your prescription and they will produce a finished product within two hours.
