LOS ANGELES, May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Although few people may know what a compounding pharmacy is, it is just what the doctor orders for patients with sensitivities to ingredients in prescription drugs. OuRX is a compounding pharmacy in Santa Monica, which is a business that focuses on providing the personalized medications clients need, as well as selling off-the-shelf medications like BLT numbing cream, sterile ophthalmic products, custom medications, and much more. OuRX is one of few independently-run stores of its kind in the Greater Los Angeles area, boasting California Board of Pharmacy registration, an organization that strictly regulates and carefully licenses pharmacies. One common prescription is the company's best preservative-free eye drops, which include Thiotepa or Cyclosproin 2% ophthalmic drops, among many other dry eye treatments.

OuRX also sells preservative-free eye gels and ointments, which may be better for customers who suffer from dry eyes that don't get proper relief from drops. However, eye gels and ointments have the drawback of making vision somewhat blurry, and are usually recommended for use only before bedtime. That's why OuRX pharmacists recommend that customers look into taking over-the-counter oral gel caps, BioTears, in conjunction with eye drops for better dry eye relief. BioTears are a biochemically-balanced oral gel cap which helps stimulate natural eye lubricant, for people who feel like their eyes are constantly dry and irritated.

When used together, eye drops and BioTears can help with the following dry eye symptoms:

  • Chronic dry eyes
  • Redness
  • Infections such as pink eye
  • Allergies
  • Itching
  • Soreness
  • Swelling
  • Mattering (eye discharge)

The reason a person might want BioTears instead of eye drops alone is because the oral gel caps go a step further. While OuRX pharmacists will recommend eye drops for flushing out debris and increasing tear production, the drops do not provide everything that is necessary to maintain and repair the ocular surface. In fact, research shows that BioTears oral gel caps improve tear chemistry, visual acuity and ocular surface health for more than 75 percent of patients. Also, recent studies have shown the BioTears even help with normal lubrication in other parts of the body, such as the mouth, vagina and interior body surfaces, including the joints and synovial membranes. 

Customers stand to benefit from a compounding pharmacy for many reasons. For instance, many customers choose OuRX Pharmacy when they need customized medications. That may mean requesting two pills in one capsule, which helps with medication compliance. Other patients may need a specific pill, but ask that it be made without a particular ingredient, such as a dye or filler they may be allergic to. No matter your medication needs, OuRX Pharmacy can customize your prescriptions to a doctor's specifications, as we have successfully done for decades.

The pharmacy accepts most insurance types and pharmacists are prepared to answers any questions relating to the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as it relates to prescription medication.
