TMA and Ophthalmologists: PROKERA Not for Optometrists

In a strongly worded letter to the Texas Optometry Board, TMA and the Texas Ophthalmological Association reject a proposal to allow optometrists to use PROKERA® to treat corneal conditions. “It is our position that Texas statutes do not authorize optometrists to use the PROKERA® ophthalmic device or similar devices from other manufacturers in their practice,” we wrote. “PROKERA® is a medical device intended for use in the closure of human tissue, which is specifically prohibited by Texas statute.” Safe and appropriate use of these ocular devices requires the training, skills, and experience provided by medical school and postgraduate training.
