    ‘Blood drops’ can be a remedy for dry eye syndrome (2018/09/14)

    Taiwan loves its smartphones, but the blue light from electronic displays can cause dry eye syndrome and corneal damage. But one Taiwanese ophthalmologist reports that eye drops made with the patient's own blood can be an effective treatment for damage caused by prolonged screen time.

    Staring at a screen can cause serious eye damage. That’s what happened to Mr. Chang, an engineer who lives in Taichung. With prolonged screen time, he developed dry eye syndrome and corneal erosion. His vision worsened to 20/200 before he sought medical help.

    When he came, he couldn’t even open his eyes – that’s how much his eyes hurt. Tears were streaming out. He couldn’t drive a car, he couldn’t look at a computer, and he couldn’t read documents. It was miserable.

    The hospital drew a sample of the patient’s blood and placed it in a centrifuge to separate out the blood components. They used a serum derived from the blood to make eye drops. Using the eye drops and other medication, Mr. Chang was able to bring his vision back to nearly the normal range.

    Blood serum separated using a centrifuge is biologically similar to human tears. It doesn’t just contain water – it has proteins and growth factors. That is what makes the serum similar to our tears.

    As the saying goes, the eyes are the windows to the soul. Doctors urge smartphone users to give their eyes a break so that they stay bright, and to seek medical attention when experiencing discomfort.

    台中張先生是一名工程師,時常盯著電腦螢幕看,只是,長期用眼過度導致嚴重的乾眼症合併角膜糜爛,視力模糊只剩0.1,醫院採取自體血清治療的方式,讓他視力逐漸好轉,恢復到0.9。

    低頭猛滑手機,小心眼睛出問題,台中一名張姓工程師,長期盯著螢幕看,最後罹患乾眼症,角膜還破皮,到醫院求助時,視力只剩0.1。

    “剛開始來他是痛到完全睜不開眼睛,一直狂流淚,這樣對他來講,沒辦法開車,也沒辦法看電腦,無法看文件,很痛苦”

    醫院抽了患者血,再用離心機把血清分離出來後製成眼藥水,「自體血清眼藥水」與藥物治療雙管齊下,讓張先生視力恢復到0.9。

    [[亞大醫院眼科主任 江鈞綺]]
    “我們離心後的血清跟正常淚水比較相近,我們自己本身淚水,不是只有水而已,其實裡面有些蛋白質,也有生長因子,所以離心過後的血清,比較接近我們正常的淚液”

    醫生也提醒民眾,眼睛是靈魂之窗,平時就應妥善保養照顧,出現問題也別延誤就醫。
