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.
