What is Prokera?

It helps restore your cornea and return your eye to a normal, healthy state.
What is amniotic membrane tissue?
Amniotic membrane is part of the placenta and is the tissue closest to the baby throughout development in the womb. Amniotic membrane protects the baby from any harm and has natural biologic actions which help the baby develop. The tissue has biological properties that aid in ocular surface repair.
The amniotic membrane tissue in Prokera has natural therapeutic actions that help damaged eye surfaces heal. Eyes treated with Prokera have less scarring and less inflammation. The amniotic membrane in Prokera is thin and clear like the tissue on the surface of your eye and protects your eye’s damaged tissue while inserted.
