Regener-Eyes information and how to possibly get it.
FROM THE COMPANY: REGENER-EYES®
NEXT GENERATION in Inflammation and Dry Eyes
The science of regenerative medicine focuses on stimulating the body's own natural ability to heal and regenerate. These therapies offer hope for patients suffering from the signs and symptoms of inflammation and injury. This results in a natural, non-surgical and long-lasting solution.
The Regener-Eyes® treatment was developed to help patients suffering from inflammation and dry eyes.
Regener-Eyes® is sterile, acellular, and is made from placental derived biomaterials. These biomaterials consist of nutrients such as proteins, cytokines and growth factors.
How it works
These nutrients act to stimulate the body's own natural ability to heal and regenerate.
• Cytokines help to reduce inflammation.
• Growth factors aid in healing and regeneration.
• Hyaluronic acid helps to lubricate and protect.
Regener-Eyes®contains naturally occurring growth factors, proteins, and anti-inflammatory cytokines such as VEGF, TGFβ1, TGFβ3, EGF, HC-HA/PTX-C.PTX-3 (Pentraxin 3), PDGF, ST2, bFGF, KGF, Collagen Types I, III, IV, V and GDF11.
Regener-Eyes® is prepared using our proprietary patented processes to ensure the safety, bioactivity, sterility, and preservation of the product.
The Regener-Eyes® Advantage
• Sterile and acellular (SAL 10 -6, without harmful irradiation)
• Non-steroidal and non-addictive
THE THREE STEPS TO HEALING
Remove the Inflammation
The anti-inflammatory cytokines communicate to your body and cells to reduce/remove your inflammation...beginning the healing process.
Reduce your Pain and Discomfort
As the inflammation reduces, your pain and discomfort will decrease, helping the body to return to homeostasis.
Healing and Regeneration
The growth factors are used as a fuel source to stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal and regenerate, just as mother nature intended.
Hey Dry Eye Syndrome Support Community and friends! What I wanted to go over today is the question that we got on the facebook group, which was wanting a little bit more information on the Regener-Eyes drop. Regener-Eyes, for those who don’t know, is a new drop that just came out recently and was just FDA regulated. It has been studied at Johns Hopkins University and it uses placental-derived biomaterials. These biomaterials contain proteins, cytokines and growth factors. The placenta, as most of you know, is pretty much a filter that provides nutrients to the baby when it’s developing. Within the placenta, there are tons of stem cells and it is filled with nutrients. It is one of the best areas of nutrients that we know because it does provide these stem cells.
What we’re actually starting to see now is freezing or banking of babies’ placental tissue because we know in the future that this material may be valuable for their health care because we can take the stem cells and create anything we want out of them. Regener-Eyes and Johns Hopkins has taken the nutrients from the placenta and put it into an eye drop which is intended to reduce inflammation. Most dry eye medications are now focused on reducing inflammation because we know that dry eye is inflammation of the surface of the eye.
The problem with drops that just reduce inflammation is that they don’t help the cells that are dying (such as your Meibomian glands and the cells that are on the surface of your eye called goblet cells). Those are responsible for producing mucin in your eye. But with this drop, it actually has growth factors in it to aid in the healing and regeneration of these cells, allowing the eye to bring these cells back to life and get them back to their natural state of producing the mucin or the oils that need to be produced. The fact that it uses placenta cells or placental-derived biomaterial is the key with this drop.
Another idea we’ve had it that we may talk to our optometry board of South Carolina to see if we can set up telemedicine. This would give us the ability to speak face-to-face and have one-on-one time with you as needed. We will charge for this, and it will be cash pay (no insurance). This will be a learning process for us as well, but we could do a one-on-one consultation with you for 15 minutes find out what will work for you and if we want to prescribe this medication. We could possibly give you a prescription for it and then have it ordered directly from the company of Regener-Eyes. Right now, the reason the company wants to send it out themselves is because it has to be hydrated so it comes in a cooler packed box. It’s a $195 per month. If you order a 6 month supply, you’ll probably get one month at a time, but they reduce the price to $170 per month. I hope this video was helpful in clearing up what Regener-Eyes is. It may be hard to find a doctor in your area that knows about this because we didn’t know much about it until the community brought it to us. We’ve done a little more research, I talked to the company, and learned how to do things.
If you’re interested in a telemedicine appointment with us, 15-30 minutes will cost a little bit (not too bad). Let us know in the comments that you’re interested in that. If you have any other questions you can also put those in the comments as well. And then we’ll come up with more videos to share as our commitment to you.

[0:00] Dr.Travis Zigler reporting to you live from my office in Camden, South Carolina. I want to go over a question we got in the Facebook group about a little more information about Regener-Eyes
[0:24] Regener-Eyes is a new drop that just came out recently that uses placental-derived biomaterials that contain proteins, cytokines and growth factors.
[1:09] We are starting to see freezing or banking of babies’ placental tissue because we know in the future that this material may be valuable for their health care because we can take the stem cells and create anything we want out of them.
[1:45] The problem with the drops is that when they reduce the inflammation they don't help the cells that are dead or dying.
[2:28] The key with this drop is that it uses the placenta derived biomaterial. We are going to talk to our board of South Carolina to see if we can set up telemedicine.
[2:47] Discussion about cost and how insurance will work.
[3:00] With this drop we can do one-on-one consultations with our patients to find out what works for them and then if we can prescribe the medicine we can give them the RX and they can take that directly to the company to purchase.
[3:17] The medicine has to be refrigerated and comes in a cooler packed box. They reduced the price to $170.00 dollars per month.
[3:36] I hope this video is helpful in clearing up what Regener-Eyes is. We have done our research on this and have spoke with the company to figure out how to do things.
[3:58] One thing I want to ask from you is, if you are interested in a telemedicine appointment with us, please let us know by clicking here and joining the discussion on our Facebook community page.
