OSRX Compounded Drops Bring Simplicity and Affordability to Eye Care Management

By Steven R. Sarkisian, Jr., MD, Founder and CEO of Oklahoma Eye Surgeons

OMNI combination drops from OSRX® have radically changed my approach to the management of glaucoma as well as post-op cataract care. In my experience it is rare to have something that shifts my practice patterns this significantly.

Extensive studies have shown that patients very much prefer a simplified medication regimen. My patients report to me that the once-a-day drop plan, or one drop taken twice daily, is easier to manage than fumbling with a host of medicines several times a day. This is crucially important. Your eyes won’t heal if you neglect to take your medicine.

Compounded drops from OSRX are not only beneficial for my patients from a compliance standpoint, but also from a cost perspective. The relatively low cost of compounded drops is a pleasant surprise for my patients, and the transparency of the cash-only price structure is a revelation.(*)

Conventional pharmacies and insurance coverage are a hassle for patients and doctors alike. Time spent on phone calls – trying to figure out which drop is covered, which generic medication is being substituted, which drop is least expensive for my patient – adds considerable overhead cost to both doctor and patient, while delaying precious time we could be using to meet a patient’s clinical needs.(**)

It is time to say goodbye to phone-tag, waiting, inefficiency and the smoke and mirrors of insurance formularies and excessive paperwork. My highly skilled and trained staff have better things to do than jump through hoops for third parties.

OSRX has demonstrated truly personalized service for my practice and my patients. The ability to reach out directly to OSRX customer representatives has made the doctor-patient process a breeze. OSRX is focused entirely on the consumer, which includes the seamless and secure online prescribing process.

OSRX has become an essential component of my patients’ post-op experience and I am so excited to recommend OSRX to friends and fellow physicians. Using fixed combination drops from the OSRX compound pharmacy is simpler for everyone concerned. OSRX compounded formulations with superior customer service is the very model for high-quality, user-friendly and affordable eye care.
