New for dry eye syndrome & corneal ulcer

PARIS – Safetran Biomedical will launch RHEA during Taiwan Ophthalmic Forum in Paris on September 16th. RHEA is a new solution to treat dry eye syndrome and corneal ulcer. The new solution is based on Safetran’s uncontested track-record in PRP(platelet rich plasma) preparation devices. Thanks to Safetran, ophthalmologists can now safely and efficiently add a new treatment method that improves healing rates of dry eye syndrome and corneal ulcer dramatically.

Dry eye syndrome affects 35% of the population, and it is a cause of chronic pain and discomfort. The conventional treatment with lubricants is often not sufficient in moderate to severe cases, which can lead to complications such as keratopathies, corneal opacities, ocular perforations, and visual loss. PRP is a portion of the patient’s blood having a platelet concentration above baseline. The main advantage of PRP over other products is the presence of the platelets and associated with this the prolonged release of growth factors that are involved in the wound healing process of the corneal and conjunctival surface.  Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) eye drops have already been used in ocular surface diseases due to their role in epithelialization and the presence of growth factors and vitamins that are similar to human tears.
