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 – are the only therapeutic devices cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that 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 pain, 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.
