InSight is excited to be a care provider in Southern Indiana offering our patients PROKERA®.
A new treatment for chronic Dry Eye that heals the surface of your eye and returns it to a normal healthy state.
Dry Eye affects an estimated 20.7 million people in the United States and is one of the most common reasons that people visit their eye doctor. Symptoms range from redness, itchy and watery eyes, to blurred vision, and if left untreated it can become more severe with pain, worsened vision, eye infections, and scarring of the cornea, the surface of your eye.
PROKERA is a biologic corneal bandage comprised of cryopreserved amniotic membrane tissue which has natural therapeutic actions known to heal the eye faster and will less pain, scarring, and inflammation. PROKERA is the only U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA-) cleared therapeutic device that both reduces inflammation and promotes healing. In addition to chronic Dry Eye, PROKERA is used to treat other ocular surface conditions including keratitis. PROKERA, from Bio-Tissue®, is easily inserted and removed in the doctor’s office, and once removed patients see and feel better. For relief call 812-366-3147.
