PROKERA is a biologic corneal bandage device that is used to treat eye diseases such as keratitis, dry eye, recurrent corneal erosions, filamentary keratitis, persistent epithelial defects, neurotrophic corneas, herpetic ulcers, and many other ocular surface diseases.
The PROKERA products are the only therapeutic devices approved by the FDA that reduce inflammation and simultaneously promote regenerative healing of the ocular surface.
The amniotic membrane tissue in PROKERA has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. PROKERA products provide faster and more effective healing of the cornea with less pain, scarring and inflammation, leading to clear corneas and improved clinical outcomes.
PROKERA devices are safe and effective with no risk of intraocular pressure spikes or delayed healing, and can be inserted in the doctor’s office.
The doctors at Wellish Vision Institute will see you for a comprehensive eye exam and then further deem if you are a good candidate for PROKERA. Las Vegas ophthalmologist Kent Wellish or any of our other highly skilled doctors will prescribe PROKERA when he sees that the patient has a damaged eye surface and needs help protecting, repairing, and promoting the healing of that surface area.
Wellish Vision Institute can see you for an appointment at any of our three locations to deem if PROKERA is necessary for you. If you are prescribed with PROKERA our doctors will handle it within the office and give you all necessary instructions for the days to come. Call our office today to see if this is the right fit for you.
