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

Found this office on the internet. I was extremely pleased with the attention I was given as soon as I walked in the door. Dr. Arkin was very thorough with my eye exam and offered solutions and did some research for the best possible product to ensure my satisfaction. He answered all my questions as if each was just as important as the other. I was not rushed through my appointment. The office staff made sure to go over my insurance and provided different options that would work best. This team truly makes you feel important and not just another patient coming through their door. Give them a call and make your appointment, you won’t be disappointed.

I have been going to Dr. Arkin now for 28 years and have always had a great experience. He came highly recommended years ago by a teacher of mine and I have been with him ever since. I trust his expertise and judgement, he convinced me in 2008 to try lasik so I would not have to wear contact lenses or glasses anymore. I went to the lasik doctors he recommended and have been very happy with the surgery. It is 10 years later and I still have 20/15 eye sight, which is better than 20/20, I can see better with lasik than I ever did with glasses or contacts, my eyesight became even crisper. I am so thankful that he recommended it thinking I would be a great candidate for it, he was right. His secretaries are very helpful, polite, professional and sensitive to the clients needs. I travel from another state where I moved to just to keep him as my eye doctor so as you can tell, I highly recommend him.

The office is really modern and the staff is friendly. Doctor Folman was very knowledgeable and friendly as well! He explained everything to me in a way I understood. I’m happy I made the choice to go here for my vision care.
