Why Amniotic Membrane?
Clarity allografts are comprised of placental extracellular matrices (ECM) that have been donated by consenting mothers during full-term, healthy caesarean section deliveries. These ECMs are known to contain growth factors, such as Epidermal Growth Factor and Transforming Growth Factor ß-1, which promote epithelial healing and exert anti-inflammatory as well as anti-angiogenic effects, respectively. By utilizing the ECM’s native properties, the Clarity Ocular Graft encourages healing by providing a biological bandage for the injury while minimizing the risk of an inflammatory response.
The Clarity Ocular Graft is a sterile allograft indicated for ocular surface diseases and injuries and is specifically used by eye physicians for the treatment of conditions of the cornea.
Common Conditions for Use:
- Corneal epithelial defect
- Recurrent corneal erosion
- Corneal ulcer
- Partial limbal stem-cell deficiency
- Chemical burn
