LEON RODRIGUEZ, Yereyni et al. Application of platelet-rich plasma in ocular surface diseases. Rev Cubana Oftalmol [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.3, e925.  Epub 22-Nov-2021. ISSN 0864-2176.

Ocular surface diseases are a group of conditions of different etiologies, symptoms and clinical findings with the common features of developing an inflammatory reaction and damaging the ocular surface. Use of blood-derived products for the treatment of ocular surface disorders has increased in ophthalmic care, since their composition is similar to that of natural tears. With the purpose of presenting cell therapy as a new scientific discipline that could be used in our environment, an automated search was conducted about the topic which included publications from the last five years. The search was performed on the Infomed platform, and the information obtained was summarized into a final report stating that blood-derived eye drops provide effective and safe treatment strategies for patients with ophthalmic conditions. Platelet-rich plasma eye drops are a potentially successful treatment option for many ocular surface disorders. However, further studies are required to establish the safety and effectiveness of this type of therapy.

Palavras-chave : Ocular surface diseases; blood-derived products; platelet-rich plasma.
