We are excited to expand our compounding services to include sterile topical and injectable forms of ophthalmic medications. Sterile ophthalmic compounds including topical antibiotic formulations, intravitreal injections, or serum eye drops allow prescribers to offer a wider array of therapeutic options to improve the care of their patients. We look forward to the opportunity to provide this much need resource.
Autologous serum eye drops are specially prepared using nutrient-rich serum from a patient’s own blood. The nutrients in the serum are key to managing chronic eye conditions and the eye drops are specially formulated for your needs. The team at MMC Pharmacy has specialized training and a newly renovated facility to prepare these sterile eye drops. Serum eye drops are an established therapy with numerous applications that may be right for your unique eye condition.
