Regenerative medicine is an emerging area of medical care that focuses on healing or replacing your diseased or damaged tissue to restore function and health. By comparison, modern medical care typically focuses on treatments that alleviate symptoms.
With regenerative medicine, researchers are looking for better ways to manage and potentially cure chronic conditions like heart disease or Type 1 diabetes.
Though scientists are still investigating various types of regenerative medicine therapies, doctors are providing treatments that support your body’s natural healing process.
At Beverly Hills Optometry: Advanced Dry Eye Center, Dr. Silani is dedicated to providing the most advanced tools and treatments available to improve vision and eye health. For regenerative medicine, he uses Regener-Eyes, which is a biologic eye drop.
Dr. Silani conducts a comprehensive eye exam when you come in with concerns about vision changes or eye health. He may consider you a candidate for regenerative medicine if you have an ocular surface disease.
Your ocular surface includes your cornea, conjunctiva, eyelids, and lacrimal glands. Any condition that affects the structure or function of your ocular surface is an ocular eye disease. Common ocular eye diseases include dry eyes and blepharitis.
If Dr. Silani determines you have an ocular surface disease, he may suggest regenerative medicine for treatment.
Regener-Eyes is a biologic eye drop that stimulates your body’s natural healing process to heal the ocular surface of your eye. The regenerative medicine eye drop contains specialized proteins that stimulate healing, including:
When applied to your eye, Regener-Eyes activates ocular surface healing to alleviate symptoms and improve eye health.
Dr. Silani provides specific instructions for use of the regenerative medicine eye drops. He may recommend 1-4 drops in each eye on a daily basis for 3-6 months.
Though results vary, you may start to see improvements in eye health and vision within six weeks.
