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've been a patient of Dr. Arkin's for many years -- wonderful doctor! My most recent appointment was with Dr. Folman -- and I had a terrific experience. Thorough and kind, he took just the right amount of time to explain all of the procedures as he investigated my retinal scans. Highly recommend this great practice.

THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO BE! The office is bright, cheery, centrally located, with the latest eye/vision technology. They have a large inventory of frames for all ages and needs, and the best contact lenses on the market. The staff is lovely - the best I have encountered in ANY office. Questions with insurance? No problem, they will help you get the most out of your plan. My physician is Dr. Arkin, who is highly knowledgeable about vision and eye health, but on top of that he is kind, patient, understanding. He has an amazing personality and is exceptional with children. I give this practice my highest recommendation. Can we make it 6 stars?

I am historically a wimp when it comes to my eyes. Took me until I was 28 to go for the 1st time! Always comfy with Dr. Arkin and staff, and his experience with eyes of all ages makes my kids just as comfortable! Thorough, not rushed, office is organized, appointment reminders are helpful and he never misses a birthday!
