The Amniotic Membrane
Amniotic membrane tissue has been found to help heal the damage of inflamed eye surfaces faster than alternative options. Eyes treated with Amniotic Membranes tend to have a quicker healing, less pain, less scarring and less inflammation, leading to clear corneas and improved clinical outcomes.
Amniotic Membranes have been used by physicians all over the world including Dr. Bond and Dr. Tennant to treat eye diseases such as recurrent corneal erosion, infectious/inflammatory keratitis, herpes, superficial epithelial defects, severe dry eye syndrome and other corneal diseases.
They are a safe, effective treatment provided by a tissue bank regulated by the FDA. The tissue has passed many quality control tests before it is provided to our doctors.
The Healing Process
Amniotic membrane devices are safe and effective with no risk of intraocular pressure (IOP) spikes or delayed healing. They are easily inserted as an in-office procedure or may be inserted in a surgical or hospital setting in conjunction with other procedures.
