For patients with chronic or severe dry eye, serum tears can provide lubrication and nourishment. However, serum tear preparation and quality can vary, and the process, from scheduling blood draws to paying lab fees, can be time-consuming and expensive for patients and providers alike.
With NovoTears®, high-quality serum tears are easy and affordable. Prepared with a consistent, proven method and accompanied by proactive education and comprehensive support for patients, NovoTears gives patients and providers more of what they need to thrive.

The industry leader in quality and patient safety, AIS Healthcare Ophthalmics does more to ensure the consistent, high-quality preparation of NovoTears. Our process ensures the bioavailability of growth factor peptides, fibronectin, immunoglobulins and vitamins, which are all critical to providing severe dry eye relief.1
Throughout the production process, we do more to put safety first. We are industry leaders in meeting USP <800>, a new set of industry standards designed to protect patients and staff from exposure to potentially hazardous drugs, including biologics like NovoTears.
By making extra investments in new processes, staff training and quality, we built a USP <800>–compliant facility before the requirements even went into effect, demonstrating our commitment to always doing more to advance quality and safety. Learn more about our pharmacy.
In addition, we make sure all of our partners meet our high standards. All blood draw centers and mobile phlebotomists are assessed for quality and safety, and our convenient blood draw kits ensure the consistency of the blood draw and preparation process.
NovoTears prescriptions are typically ready for patients within three to five days.
