Reduce Inflammation & Promote Quality Healing
Cryopreserved amniotic membrane is the ONLY tissue cleared for wound healing by the FDA
What does PROKERA® do?
The amniotic membrane tissue in PROKERA® has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. Eyes treated with PROKERA® have quicker healing, less pain, less scarring, and less inflammation. 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.
What does PROKERA® treat?
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.
Is PROKERA® safe?
PROKERA® is a safe, effective treatment provided by a tissue bank regulated by the FDA. The tissue has passed many quality control tests before it is provided to your doctor. Ask your doctor if you are concerned about the risks involved with using a human tissue.
PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage devices are used by eye doctors around the world to heal and treat eye diseases such as keratitis, common dry eye, recurrent corneal erosions, filamentary keratitis, persistent epithelial defects, neurotrophic corneas, herpetic ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases. The PROKERA® family of products - PROKERA® SLIM, PROKERA®, and PROKERA®PLUS - are the only therapeutic devices cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that reduce inflammation and simultaneously promote regenerative healing of the ocular surface.
