The PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage is designed to help heal and protect the inflamed surface of the eye. PROKERA® is the only FDA-cleared therapeutic device that reduces inflammation and promotes scar-less healing.
What is Prokera?
Prokera® is made from amniotic membrane which has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties. It helps restore your cornea and return your eye to a normal, healthy state. The amniotic membrane tissue in Prokera has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. The amniotic membrane in Prokera is thin and clear like the tissue on the surface of your eye and protects your eye’s damaged tissue while inserted.
Prokera is used by eye doctors to treat eye diseases such as keratitis, corneal scars, chemical burns, corneal defects, partial limbal stem cell deficiency and many other ocular surface diseases with inflammation.
Prokera is similar to a large contact lens. You may experience awareness of the ring but it is not painful. For optimal healing, it is important that you complete the Prokera treatment period of 3-5 days.
If you are tired of using at-home or over-the-counter therapies without relief, schedule your dry eye consultation.
