PROKERA® Biologic Corneal Bandage

The PROKERA® biologic corneal bandage is designed to help heal and protect the inflamed surface of the eye. Approved by the FDA, the PROKERA corneal bandage is an anti-inflammatory used to reduce pain, minimize scarring and promote healing. The PROKERA corneal bandage consists of a segment of amniotic membrane tissue fitted between two clear, flexible rings. The amniotic membrane, which is found within the human placenta, is donated by women who have been medically screened and have provided consent after a cesarean-section childbirth. The amniotic membrane is cryopreserved and saved in a tissue bank regulated by the FDA.

The PROKERA Treatment

The PROKERA treatment option may be used in patients with the following conditions:

  • Corneal erosion
  • Keratitis
  • Ocular herpes
  • Severe dry eye syndrome
  • Other corneal disorders

The PROKERA biologic corneal bandage protects the surface of the eye from external irritants, relieving pain and promoting healing. The PROKERA bandage is placed on the eye by a physician and patients should not remove it unless otherwise instructed. It is similar to a contact lens in shape, but slightly thicker, so some patients experience discomfort during a short adjustment period. Special instructions that must be followed after the insertion of the PROKERA corneal bandage will be provided.
