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.

PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage devices are trusted by eye doctors around the world to achieve better patient outcomes. 93% of patients with moderate-to-severe dry eye disease reported improvement after one PROKERA treatment.6 It can be easily placed during a regular office visit or used with surgical interventions.
PROKERA® helps restore your patient’s cornea and return their eye to a normal, healthy state. It helps rapidly restore the cornea’s own healing capabilities with key Cryopreserved Amniotic Complex, the essential effector complex that orchestrates regenerative healing.4
PROKERA® contains the only cryopreserved amniotic membrane that is FDA-cleared and has demonstrated effectiveness in reducing harmful inflammation1,2, minimizing scarring2,3 and achieving corneal clarity1.
Neel Desai, MD, discusses the use of bypassing steroids in favor of the anti-inflammatory, anti-scarring properties in the biologic corneal bandage that restores the ocular surface without compromising the epithelial healing process.”
Robert Mack, MD, discusses a new treatment option for recurrent corneal erosion, a common ocular disorder. PROKERA® can be used to restore corneal integrity, regain epithelial attachments, and prevent recurrence.
W. Barry Lee, MD recounts how a herpes simplex infection required a corneal transplant which healed in a few short days, instead of the expected weeks, through the use of a biologic corneal bandage.
