Autologous serum eyedrops
Details and specifications
Autologous Serum Eyedrops (ASE) may be prescribed for patients who suffer from severe dryness of the eye, and who do not obtain relief from conventional pharmaceutical eyedrops. They are prepared from the patient's own blood, which is processed to separate out the serum. The serum is then diluted with saline, and dispensed into dropper bottles that are returned to the patient.
Ophthalmologists wishing to discuss the service further, or refer patients for ASE treatment, should in the first instance contact NHSBT on 0845 607 6820.
