Improve Your Eye Health With Vital Tears

Different from artificial tears, Vital Tears are autologous serum eye drops that are formulated using your own blood. This allows us to create a personalized treatment that’s more efficient and better tolerated by your eyes. If you’re in need of treatment for dry eyes or ocular surface disorders, autologous serum eye drops can offer relief. For Vital Tears in McAllen, you can rely on Gelman Vision.

What Are Vital Tears?

Vital Tears are custom-made eye drops made from your own blood serum. Ophthalmologists and optometrists have prescribed the use of autologous serum tears for over 30 years to treat those su­ffering from a range of eye conditions that interrupt the production of natural tears. Autologous serum eye drops (ASEDs), autologous serum tears (ASTs), or just serum tears are customized eye drops made from a patient’s blood to provide essential growth factors.
