Many eye conditions (dry eye disease, corneal ulcers, recurrent erosions, etc) cause microtrauma to the corneal surface that can cause eye pain and blurred vision. The Prokera graft is an amniotic membrane derived from placental tissue and delivers natural therapeutic properties to help heal these damaged corneas. The treatment is safe, and the tissue has to pass several quality control tests regulated by the FDA before being distributed to physicians. For more information about the graft, please click HERE.
The Prokera is placed on the surface of the cornea in a quick, painless, in-office procedure. The graft is typically removed after 4-7 days. Patients should expect temporary blurred vision while the graft is in place.
