Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy announced today that it has collaborated with Dr. Adam Scheiner of Tampa Eye Clinic to formulate eye drops for the relief of Dry Eye and Sjogren’s Syndrome. The eye drops are a proprietary formulation of Dr. Scheiner and named Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Drops. PRP Drops are prepared from a patient’s own blood and compounded with artificial tears, antibiotics, and other proprietary medicines. PRP Drops are available via prescription from Tampa Eye Clinic and fulfilled exclusively by Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Drops are based on Carrollwood Compounding Centers Autologous Serum Tears, but with additional benefits from Dr. Scheiner’s proprietary formulation. Autologous Serum Tears have proven to provide relief for Dry Eye Syndrome and other inflammatory diseases. Dry Eye Syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Its symptoms can range from constant eye irritation to inflammation and scarring of the eye surface.
Tampa Eye Clinic partnered with Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy because of its existing network of labs across the state of Florida and its ability to fulfill orders overnight. Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy provides information about Autologous Serum Tears at www.ASTDrops.com.
“We are very excited to collaborate with Tampa Eye Clinic on a solution for Dry Eye and Sjogren’s Syndrome,” said Dan Fucarino, Owner of Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy. “Carrollwood Compounding Pharmacy has invested significantly in our sterile compounding lab so that we can provide these services for physicians across the state.”
About Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy
Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy was founded in 1965 on the outskirts of Tampa, FL. The original pharmacy was complete with an old fashion soda fountain and lunch counter and was one of the few places to eat on North Dale Mabry Hwy. Over the years Tampa grew and Carrollwood Compounding Center and Pharmacy became surrounded by homes, businesses, and people. During the growth the Pharmacy has stayed true to its original mission of “Providing patients with the best service, the friendliness staff, and a fair price.” This commitment to the patient has allowed the pharmacy to expand to provide retail pharmacy, hormone replacement, pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements, and non-sterile and sterile compounding services.
