Bio-Tissue, a subsidiary of TissueTech, is the pioneer and leader in regenerative medicine for ocular surface disease and injury, as well as ocular hygiene solutions for eye care professionals. Established in 1997, Bio-Tissue serves an unmet need for better surgical and therapeutic alternatives for helping eye care professionals manage ocular surface conditions, such as keratitis, recurrent corneal erosions, conjunctivochalasis (CCh) also known as mechanical dry eye, pterygium and severe dry eye.
Eye care professionals understand that good medicine is based on good science. Bio-Tissue prides itself on developing products that meet the highest clinical standards, are based on quality research and scientific data, and provide innovative solutions for the management of a range of ocular surface and lid margin diseases. Bio-Tissue adheres to the FDA tissue and medical device guidelines.
PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage devices are used by eye doctors around the world to heal and treat ocular conditions such as keratitis, moderate to severe dry eye disease, recurrent corneal erosions, filamentary keratitis, persistent epithelial defects, neurotrophic corneas, herpetic ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases such as chemical burns and Stevens-Johnson syndrome.
AmnioGraft is a biologic ocular transplantation graft used by eye surgeons around the world as an adjunct therapy to treat ocular surface indications such as corneal ulcers, pterygium, mechanical dry eye (also known as conjunctivochalasis), excision of tumors, chemical burns, and Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. AmnioGraft serves as a tissue replacement by delivering the unique therapeutic actions of cryopreserved amniotic membrane.
AmnioGuard is an umbilical cord graft used by ophthalmic surgeons for a number of indications including to cover the tube shunt of a glaucoma drainage device. Due to its high tensile strength and optimally designed thickness, AmnioGuard can reduce surgical times because it does not require rehydration, is easy to handle and suture, and can be used for corneal, conjunctival, sclera, fornix, socket and eyelids where thickness and high tensile strength are desired.
“Cryopreserved maintains a lot of the essential components that are necessary for healing. It also has the research and there is lots of scientific sources that show nerve regeneration for example, which we have not seen with any other form of amniotic membrane.”
“We’ve all had the paradoxical patient that seems to have dry eye and typical ocular surface disease, but they simply don’t respond to all of the typical conventional therapies…there is a missing x-factor. And that x-factor is this Mechanical Dry Eye concept, or conjunctivochalasis.”
“I put on a second one and took it off a week later, she was 20/20 on both eyes, we canceled the surgery and I became a believer. That was my Wow Moment”
