Applying autologous blood serum as tear substitute experience?

In literature, there r reports of applying blood serum from one' s
own blood as tear substitutes against "dry eye", based on it has the osmotic pressure, Vit. A concentration and other substituents which are desired, and unpreserved.
If any professional - or even patient, less likely - has theoretical or practical consideration on the above, kindly share it. I have gathered moderately extensive reports from pertinent established scient. journals, but I totally lack in the clinical experience area.

Thank u in advance.

baklavas...if you search the sjogrens syndrome board, there is posts about that serum on there. some have tried and didn't feel for the money, that they were worth it. have you tried punctal plugs, restasis?
