What is PROKERA?
PROKERA is made from an amniotic membrane that has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties. It is the only FDA-cleared cryopreserved amniotic membrane used by eye care practitioners to provide quick symptom relief and reduce inflammation associated with the ocular surface disease. PROKERA can help restore your cornea and return your eye to a normal, healthy state.
What is Amniotic Membrane Tissue?
Amniotic membrane is part of the placenta and is the tissue closest to the baby throughout development in the womb. Amniotic membrane protects the baby from any harm and has natural biologic actions which help the baby develop. The tissue also has natural properties that have been shown to aid in ocular surface repair.
The amniotic membrane tissue in PROKERA has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. Eyes treated with PROKERA have less scarring and less inflammation. The amniotic membrane in PROKERA is thin and clear like the tissue on the surface of your eye and protects your eye’s damaged tissue while inserted.
What does PROKERA treat?
PROKERA is used by eye doctors to treat eye diseases such as keratitis, corneal scars, chemical burns, corneal defects, partial limbal stem cell deficiency and many other ocular surface diseases with inflammation.
