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

What Our Patients Say

Great experience with Dr. Folman. He was very professional and up to date on knowledge. I was fitted for contact that I never knew would work for me since I need both near and far vision..

I've been going to Dr. Arkin for over 10 years and he has done an amazing job during each visit to ensure my eye health and vision. I hadn't realized how "poor" my vision had gotten since my last appointment. As always, Dr. Arkin did a thorough exam and prescribed new glasses for both distance and close-up. The new glasses for computer use, in particular, probably saved my job, as I didn't realize how blurry everything had been. And the distance glasses have already come in handy for driving and "cinema" viewing. Thank you, Dr. Arkin and your wonderful team, for all that you do to keep your patients' eyes healthy and focused!

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!
