Ocular Surface Disease
Dry Eye Disease is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye and may also be accompanied by inflammation. Dry Eye can be very uncomfortable with symptoms ranging from redness, itchy and watery eyes, to blurred vision. If left untreated, it can become more severe and lead to pain, worsened vision, eye infections, and scarring of the cornea, the clear surface of the front of the eye.
Ocular Surface Disease Treatments
For mild cases of OSD (ocular surface disease), traditional treatment options may include over the counter eye drops, warm compresses and lid scrubs. As OSD becomes chronic and severe, immunomodulation and steroids may be needed; however the latter can come with risks of changing intraocular (IOP) pressure and delayed healing. New treatment options for OSD include PROKERA®, Cliradex® and AmnioGraft®.
A new treatment for chronic Dry Eye, PROKERA heals your cornea and returns your eye to a normal, healthy state. PROKERA is the only FDA-cleared therapeutic device that reduces inflammation and promotes healing, and is easily inserted and removed in your doctor’s office. Similar to a contact lens and made of amniotic tissue known for its natural therapeutic actions, PROKERA heals your eye faster with less pain, scarring and inflammation.
Center For Sight is pleased to offer our patients PROKERA®, a new treatment for chronic Dry Eye that heals the surface of your eye (cornea) and returns your eye to a normal, healthy state. PROKERA is a simple procedure and is easily inserted and removed in our office. Once removed your cornea is rejuvenated so you can see and feel better. In a recent patient survey, 93% of patients with Dry Eye said they felt better after treatment with PROKERA.
PROKERA is similar to a contact lens and is made of amniotic tissue, which is known for its natural therapeutic actions and heals your eye faster with less pain, scarring, and inflammation. The amniotic tissue used in PROKERA is provided by a tissue bank regulated by the FDA and has passed numerous quality control tests making it safe and effective. Clinical studies have shown PROKERA reduces the sign and symptoms of Dry Eye, and helps soothe pain, heal the eye, and improve vision.
PROKERA is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared therapeutic device that reduces inflammation and promotes healing. For more information visit www.prokerainfo.com.
