How exactly does Prokera work?
What to Expect
With Prokera, you can have peace of mind in knowing that your physician has chosen a product that can help facilitate healing1 and help restore your ocular surface to a natural and healthy state.
To date, over 100,000 patients have experienced the beneficial properties of Prokera. This guide will help you understand what you can expect during treatment with Prokera.
What is Prokera?
Prokera is the only medical device made from amniotic membrane for use by eye care practitioners that is recognized by the FDA² to reduce infammation and minimize corneal scarring associated with various ocular surface diseases. Prokera may help to restore your cornea and return your eye to a normal, healthy state.
Is Prokera safe?
Prokera is a safe treatment provided by an FDA-regulated tissue bank. The donor and tissue have passed numerous quality control tests including social habits, physical and medical screening before it is provided to your doctor. The tissue is donated from healthy mothers who have had c-sections.
For optimal corneal healing, the treatment process can range from 3-5 days. Depending on the severity of your condition, your doctor may choose to extend the treatment period or place a second Prokera device. Your doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to check your treatment progress and remove the Prokera lens.
Allergies and Warnings
If you are allergic to Ciprofloxacin, Amphotericin B, Glycerol, and/or Dulbecco’s Modifed Eagle Medium (DMEM), you should notify your doctor and not receive the Prokera treatment. You may experience discomfort from the insertion of Prokera. You should notify your doctor of any swelling, redness or discharge.
