Dr. Burstein is Now Using Prokera Lens!

Recently Dr. Burstein inserted his first Prokera lens. PROKERA is made from amniotic membrane (the part of the placenta closest to the baby throughout development in the womb) which has natural anti-inflammatory and anti-scarring properties. The tissue is rich in fetal stem cells which can enhance the health of other tissues it comes in contact with. Prokera is the only FDA cleared therapeutic device to provide quick symptom relief and reduce inflammation associated with ocular surface disease like keratitis, moderate to severe dry eye disease, recurrent corneal erosions, herpetic ulcers, chemical burns, and many other ocular surface diseases. It helps restore your cornea and return your eye to a normal, healthy state. Previous treatments could address either the inflammation or healing management, but not both. Prokera is used in a way that’s similar to wearing a large contact lens. After 4 – 5 days of treatment, the cornea heals, vision improves, and the lens is removed.
