Pat Levey suffered from dry eye and other inflammatory issues for many years. In 2015, following treatment with steroids, she endured corneal infections and then a more serious corneal ulcer. Pat endured a number of treatments for the corneal ulcer that didn’t work, with increasing pain and as her vision deteriorated. All of this greatly affected her quality of life, her career as an artist, and she was growing increasingly worried that she would lose her vision. Pat’s physician recommended treatment with PROKERA, the only therapeutic device recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to reduce inflammation and prevent and remove scarring of the ocular surface. Following treatment with PROKERA, Pat’s pain has been relieved and her vision has been restored. The result has been life changing and allowed her to return to her artwork and daily activities.
“PROKERA changed my life – it gave me back my life as an artist.”
