What is Prokera®?
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 reduce inflammation and simultaneously promote regenerative healing of the ocular surface.
Natural, Therapeutic Healing
The amniotic membrane tissue in PROKERA products, which is preserved using the Company’s proprietary CryoTek® processing method to ensure the tissue retains its full biologic activity, has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. PROKERA products provide faster and more effective healing of the cornea with less scarring and inflammation, leading to clear corneas and improved clinical outcomes.
The Healing Process
PROKERA biologic corneal bandage devices are safe and effective with no risk of intraocular pressure (IOP) spikes or delayed healing. PROKERA products can be inserted in the doctor’s office, or may be inserted in a surgical or hospital setting in conjunction with other procedures. PROKERA products can also be used in combination with topical agents.
