Contact lenses are also used to help heal eye disease, similar to how a bandage can facilitate healing and relieve surface pain. One type of medical contact lens is Prokera, which contains biological material to help restore ocular health. Prokera facilitates faster healing, relieves pain, reduces scarring, and decreased inflammation.

In particular, Prokera is effective at treating:

  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Keratitis
  • Chemical burns
  • Corneal ulcers, abrasions, erosions, inflammation, and infections
  • Bullous keratopathy

I have been with Dr Arkin for over 15years! He is great at what he does. He is very knowledgeable and uses the most updated technology to provide great service to his clients. I just recently tried to use another doctor for my exam last year and I realized how different the experience was. I quickly went back to Dr Arkin this year and will continue to go to his office . Thank you for the great service you have provided to me all these years! May God continue to bless your special gift and service!

Dr. Arkin is my eye doctor for life! Over a decade ago he was the ONLY Doctor, out of 30 calls I made, who squeezed me in the same day when I had an emergency situation. He took care of me then, and has continued to take care of me since. As long as he is practicing, I have no need to look elsewhere, and would recommend him to ANYONE!

Dr. Folman was lovely, personable, and efficient. I would HIGHLY recommend him over another optometrist anywhere else. The front desk staff were also very pleasant, probably the best I've encountered in any other office, which means a lot when it comes to patient care. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. 😊

Dr Arkin is a gem of an optometrist!! He conducts a meticulous eye exam. He is conscientious and thorough and I always feel like he is genuinely interested in my eye health. My husband and I have been patients for 13 years and I love coming to appointments here. He is also a terrific person and always asks after your family. He spends time with you in the manner of a traditional doctor, getting to know you as a person. You are never a number in Dr. Arkin’s office. His staff are kind, caring, efficient and there is a happy atmosphere when you walk into the office. Do yourself a favor and come here. You will be so thankful you did!

My family has entrusted Dr. Martin Arkin to care for our eyes his entire career. He has always maintained the highest level of professionalism and attention to his patients. He provides a thorough exam with the latest technology available. He takes the time to ensure your contact lens or eyeglass prescription is correct and your vision is at its best. He also provides a wide selection of frames for every taste within his office. Finally, his staff is always courteous, attentive, and knowledgeable for any need you may have. I highly recommend Dr. Arkin to anyone to have him and his office take care of their eyesight.
