4 Things to Know about The CAM360 AmnioGraft? Is it Better than Prokera?

Updated: Jun 23


CAM360 Amniograft by Biotissue

1. What is CAM360 Amniograft


CAM360 is a Cryopreserved Amniotic Membrane (CAM) that is attached to a contact lens. Biotissue's Prokera products all have rings attached to the amniotic membranes to keep them centered on the eye. This ring may not be optimal for all patients. This is where CAM360 comes in. CAM360 is applied to the eye in the office by a doctor.


The membrane has adhesive properties that allow it to adhere to the surface of the eye and stay in place under the contact lens. The eye can then go through the healing process over the next 2-7 days. CAM360 is then removed by an eye doctor.

2. How Does CAM360 Heal the Eye?


Per Biotissue, amniotic membrane has been shown to promote corneal nerve regeneration and reduce symptoms and signs of dry eye disease among other benefits. It is thought that a compound in the membrane, HC-HA/PTX3, is responsible for these benefits. HC-HA/PTX3 is only found in membranes that gone through the cryopreservation process.


3. What Conditions Does It Treat?


CAM360 will likely be approved to treat (not exhaustive list):

  • Neurotrophic Keratopathy

  • Dry Eye Disease

  • Superficial punctate keratitis (SPK)

  • Other types of ocular surface disease


4. Is It Better than Prokera?


CAM360 can be thought of as a gentler way to apply amniotic membrane. There is no plastic ring that has the possibility of causing irritation. However, certain conditions may be more optimally treated by a Prokera. Only your eye doctor can determine what is best for you. Go to biotissue.com for more information.



Disclosure: This information is not medical advice nor is it a substitute for advice from your doctor. If you have a damaging condition of the surface of the eye or any other eye condition you must consult your eye doctor for the right treatment recommendations or treatment plan. Not all patients are candidates for CAM360 or Prokera.
