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 found Dr. Arkin on line and couldn’t be happier! He is professional and wonderfully humorous, which is so hard to find in any Dr. these days. His office staff was equally as wonderful and very helpful and patient when it came time to pick glasses. So glad I found Dr. Arkin and his team! If you need a thorough, efficient and fun experience with an eye Doc, look no further!
