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
