Patient Success Stories

Cliradex® works very well and almost all of my symptoms are gone. I will be telling my optometrist in Ojai when I go back to him. I am very happy about this product. I want to stockpile it in case I need more.”

“I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror, and was pleasantly surprised to see the whitest eyes I have seen in my head in some time. Both of my eyelids also seem to be less swollen as well (although I had not quite realized how swollen they really were). I am quite amazed with Cliradex®, to think I could have gone on like this for a long time without realizing just how serious a problem I was having.”

“Over the last few years I had been experiencing a lot of eye discomfort and as of late it had started interfering with my quality of life. Unfortunately, as time went on, I noticed that I was not getting the relief that I had originally received when I started using prescription drops. It got to the point where I was waking up in the middle of the night with the feeling that someone had tossed sand in my eyes.
The first day I used Cliradex® I experienced a great deal of relief. I didn’t wake up that night with the sandy grit in my eyes and I didn’t need to use any lubricating eye drops the next day either!
With the relief and increased quality of life that I have experienced since using Cliradex®, I plan on continuing the use of your products and letting others know of how it has changed my life.”

“I have been an allergy sufferer since a teenager, typically sneezing with itchy red eyes in the Spring and again in the Fall (hay fever). I’ve been using Cliradex® for about 3 weeks (it is Spring) and my eye symptoms have greatly diminished. I typically had to use allergy eye drops daily to stop the itching and redness - I have been able to go without eye drops almost entirely now. My eye symptoms have almost totally disappeared and I wake up with clear eyes that feel great all day long. I am very impressed with Cliradex®. Thanks for the great product!”

“My eyes have been dry over the past couple of years. They prescribed eye drops, but I was told by a friend who is doing her ophthalmology residency not to use it. She said it was equivalent to a horse tranquilizer. Anyway, seems like I wake up with my eyes feeling better after using your Cliradex® product. They are not shut together from the dryness after I use it.”
Thanks,

"Dr. Sally Mellgren performed the above procedure [AmnioGraft® for conjunctivochalasis] on my right eye and on my left eye. I experienced no problems with the recovery from the procedures. My vision and clarity was much improved and I would recommend it for others experiencing the same problems"

I'm writing to thank you for making such an amazing product!! I've been so frustrated with my eyes over the past couple of years. I had sections of eyelashes that started growing in different directions and always felt as though there was 'something in' my left eye. I used to get compliments on my 'pretty blue eyes,' but now people were more likely to greet me and say, "Oh dear, are you OK? Because I do have Sjogren's, perhaps my doctor was attributing my complaints to that condition, and the dryness it can cause and last year he recommended that I see a dermatologist to have my mild Rosacea treated (I didn't know I had Rosacea). So frustrated, I searched the internet and stumbled on Cliradex! I was so impressed with the science behind your product. The results are so satisfying! After just a few days, the sensation of having something stuck in my eye disappeared completely! My eyes felt less irritated almost from the first application. A week along, and my eyes looked clearer and brighter. Now, after only 19 days, my eyelashes have started aiming in the right direction, and I can see new lashes starting to grow in where they were missing. I'm thrilled! With all the 'snake oil' that's out there, it's so unusual to find an over-the-counter product that truly does what it claims to do and makes such a positive difference. You can pat yourselves on the back for that! My 'pretty blue eyes' are grateful for your work!
Sincerely, - Ms. Cumming

“No other product on the market has worked for me like Cliradex®. Cliradex®, with the active ingredient from tea tree oil, offers exciting potential. In my practice, I have tremendous demands and a huge waiting list for this product. Can’t wait for its availability.”

"Finally we have a "plug and play" product to help us with crusting of the lids, itchiness, and redness, which are all symptoms of Demodex blepharitis. This has been a great benefit for my patients and has saved me countless hours in the lanes. Cliradex® is effective, easy to use, and well tolerated."
- S.S., MD

“One of the most difficult blepharitis patients we have in our office is an ODs sister. She came back after a month on the Cliradex® product and was dramatically improved. The result was impressive...”

"I have very much been amazed by the AmnioGraft®. I am a fairly high volume pterygium surgeon and as a cornea specialist I get many referrals for recurrent pterygiums. AmnioGraft® has been invaluable in my practice."
- Amin Ashrafzadeh, MD
"I have used AMT in four eyes with Salzmann's nodular corneal dystrophy, and in several other severely scarred or recurrent pterygia, all with good results. I am very impressed with the anti-inflammatory effects of the AmnioGraft®, and am considering other uses."- Maxwell A. Helfgott, MD
"When I travel out of the country, I am able to use this product with confidence because of the positive results I have received from using it at St. Joseph's Hospital in Orange, CA. During my medical missions to Kabul, Afghanistan and Colombia, donated AmnioGraft® was used, and I was extremely pleased with the outcome. Several children with chemical burns and trauma from land mine injury were treated with these grafts...There was one woman who traveled for 5 hours from the mountains...she was found to have corneal scleral thinning. PROKERA® was used and after following her up for a week, I was very pleased with the results." - Aisha Simjee, MD, FACS
"I wanted to thank you for helping me with a difficult case of Stevens Johnson recently...the patient did extraordinarily well, recovering 20/20 vision in each eye with an ocular surface that looks pristine now a few months after her acute episode. I do not think this outcome would have been possible without AmnioGraft®."- Steven Safran, MD
"I'm happy to write about the success I've had with PROKERA® for a variety of indications...Patients with alkali and other chemical injuries, mucous membrane pemphigoid, and Stevens Johnson also do very well with PROKERA®. Delayed re-epithelialization from inflammatory conditions and other causes usually turns around fast with this technology. I have not had similar success with dehydrated amniotic membrane preparations. There is much data to support the use of cryopreserved amniotic membrane, which is hardly a new treatment modality." - Robert Mack, MD
"Using AmnioGraft® for pterygium excision is much less painful for the patient [than conjunctival autograft], and the results are beautiful...I am just a happy customer. Best of luck."
- Marc H. Shomer, MD, PhD
"The entire line of PROKERA® devices has truly expanded my treatment options for many patients with anterior segment disease. I have been able to successfully manage recalcitrant dry eye patients whose condition is progressing, as well as being able to decrease the frequency of recurrent corneal erosions after debridement and PROKERA®placement. These patients do very well and the results are outstanding. The regenerative healing properties that PROKERA®offers allows us to treat so many anterior segment conditions that we encounter routinely. This is a win-win situation for both the doctor and the patient."
