As a specialist in the identification, treatment, and prevention of issues pertaining to human eyes, it is no secret that commercially available medications do not always offer the breadth and depth of what is needed to diagnose and treat patients. Ophthalmic compounds are prescribed for patient use at home and for in-office diagnostics and procedures. Our customer service team will work with your institution, you and your patients to ensure prescriptions are compounded and shipped in a timely manner. At VLS Pharmacy, we can compound to treat conditions including:
Ophthalmic compounding requires specialized equipment and a sterile environment (as mandated by USP for the preparation of all eye medications). This niche area of expertise allows us to supply adult and pediatric patients with ophthalmic compounds whether in a hospital/surgical setting, in the office or at home. Our compounding pharmacists and technicians are skilled in advanced aseptic techniques and all compounds have been independently tested by third party facilities. Our multi-state licensure and efficient turnaround times allow you to predictably plan patient protocols.

OTC and even commercially available prescription products may not be appropriate to treat your patients’ eye conditions. Eyes are very sensitive, and individuals may be allergic to or have issues with preservatives in common medications. Thanks to ophthalmic compounding, we can prepare the medication without the preservative. Additionally, if an FDA-approved product is on backorder or discontinued, we can create a reliable replacement medication for you and your patients. Ultimately, treatment and recovery may improve thanks to the individualized strengths and dosages made possible with ophthalmic compounding.
As a 503A pharmacy, VLS Pharmacy is committed to providing high-quality formulations for sterile and non-sterile compounded medications to you and your patients. Thanks to rigorous testing measures, we guarantee the safety, stability, purity, sterility, and quality of each formulation from preparation to administration. We use high quality, active pharmaceutical ingredients sourced directly from PCCA, the leader of superior-quality APIs. Additionally, our pharmacy network meets USP <795> non-sterile standards and USP <797> sterile compounding guidelines. We’re also proud to host one of the first pharmaceutical labs built to USP <800> standards for handling hazardous drugs.
All of our medications undergo third-party potency and stability testing, and we complete high-sensitivity rapid endotoxin detection on-site. These measures allow for shorter delivery times to the patient without compromising our products. Because we source all of our active ingredients from PCCA, we also promise an additional level of pre-formulation testing, as PCCA ingredients undergo 14 high-level checks and reviews in order to pass inspection.
For almost three decades, our team has been committed to serving our network of physicians and patients. We appreciate the opportunity to share our expertise as we develop advanced compounded formulations for those who need and want more than what is commercially available. We work hard to achieve excellence in all areas of our business — from investment and advancement to personalized customer service and rigorous in-house and third-party safety testing and quality assurance. We are proud to prove the best, individualized medical solutions, compounded as needed.
Our 503A pharmacy network specializes in providing custom-made sterile and non-sterile compounded medications to physicians and patients across the country. Each prescription is crafted and delivered with a commitment to the highest level of quality, safety and service.
