Cryopreserved amniotic membrane is the ONLY tissue cleared for wound healing by the FDA
cryopreservation process is a result of 25 years of research into the biology of the Amniotic Membrane and Umbilical Cord. This cryopreservation (CryoTek®) method ensures retention of key healing components of the Extracellular Matrix (ECM)1,2,3 which uniquely promote regenerative healing. Read more...

Healing the Ocular Surface
When the body heals normally, inflammation is just one step in the healing process, but when inflammation, acute or chronic, becomes uncontrolled, healing may stop or produce scarring. When this happens in or around the eye, patients may suffer life-long vision loss. The bioactive components present in Bio-Tissue® products control inflammation on the ocular surface quickly, safely, and naturally to promote regenerative healing and prevent scarring.
The Company's comprehensive line of tissue and medical device products are the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) products cleared for wound healing.
Scientifically Proven Ocular Hygiene Solutions
A commitment to regular eyelash, eyelid, and skin cleansing is important for people with eye conditions like blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, chalazia and rosacea, as these conditions have also been associated with demodex mites. Most Eye Care Professionals today are recommending a number of ocular hygiene solutions many of which may contain some form of tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil (TTO), the essential oil derived from the native plant, Melaleuca alternifolia, is characterized by 15 major components.9,15 Scientific studies have shown that 4-Terpineol, or Terpinen-4-ol (T4O), is the most important ingredient found in TTO8,9 with even greater miticidal effects than TTO itself. This is because some of TTO’s ingredients are ineffective and their relationship is antagonistic, meaning the efficacy of one component is cancelled out by the presence of another component.8
The Cliradex® line of products are a natural, preservative-free way to cleanse the eyelashes, eyelids, and face and help manage symptoms associated with demodex, blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD), rosacea, dry eye, chalazia and other lid margin diseases.
Cliradex® is the ONLY commercially available product that isolates 4-Terpineol, the most important ingredient found in tea tree oil.8-14 Click here to view Sources.
