Dry Eye Syndrome
Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient moisture and lubrication on the surface of the eye. As a result, patients will experience a range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye.
Abell Eyes 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 the PROKERA® product website.
