Who it’s for:
People with severe ocular surface disease such as Bell’s Palsy or another paralysis, corneal ulcer, corneal dystrophy, and chemical burns. Can also be used in some patients with severe dry eye disease.
What to expect:
Prokera is a medical device made from an amniotic membrane at an FDA-regulated tissue bank. It is designed to reduce inflammation and reduce corneal scarring. The doctor will insert the Prokera ring, similar to a bandage contact lens, that will stay in the eye for about 3-5 days.
