|Ophthalmology Photorefractive Keratectomy ("PRK") Laser Assisted Surgery Refractive Surgery||Device: Ocular Bandage Gel (OBG) Device: Bandage Contact Lens (BCL)||Not Applicable|
This is a prospective, randomized, masked (reading center), controlled pivotal study of Ocular Bandage Gel (OBG) vs. a Bandage Contact Lens (BCL) in subjects who have undergone bilateral photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
Study subjects will be evaluated and, if eligible following PRK, will receive the study treatment in a 1:1 randomization with both eyes receiving the same treatment.
Sites will capture the time that PRK surgery OU is completed. Sites will enroll eligible subjects and randomly assign a subject to Treatment Group (OBG) or Control Group (BCL). One eye will be randomized as the designated "study eye" for statistical purposes.
The reading center will be masked as to the randomization assignments. Both eyes will receive the same randomized assignment and both eyes of each subject will be evaluated at all timepoints.
The defect in both eyes of all subjects will be measured starting at Day 2 (48 hours after PRK). The slit lamp photos are to be collected at 48 hours (±1 hour) from PRK completion in both eyes.
The BCL in the Control Group eyes will be removed daily starting at Day 2 for slit lamp photos. Slit lamp measurements, as well as photography of the epithelial defect (without and with fluorescein), will be taken of both eyes of all subjects. Photos will be evaluated by a masked reading center.
|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||260 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||All subjects (all eyes) who receive any study treatment will be evaluable for safety analysis. All treatment assignments are assigned through 1:1 randomization with one eye designated as the "study eye" for statistical purposes. The final subject evaluability will be determined prior to breaking the code for masked treatment assignment and locking the database.|
|Masking:||Single (Outcomes Assessor)|
|Masking Description:||Masked images will be sent to a central reading center|
|Official Title:||A Randomized Masked (Reading Center), Controlled, Prospective Pivotal Study of the Effectiveness and Safety of the EyeGate Ocular Bandage Gel, a 0.75% Crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Applied Topically, Versus a Bandage Contact Lens (BCL) in Accelerating Re-epithelialization of Large Corneal Epithelial Defects in Patients Having Undergone Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK).|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||November 20, 2019|
Experimental: Ocular Bandage Gel (OBG)
Cross-linked Hyaluronic Acid 0.75%, regulated through CDRH (device). EyeGate Ocular Bandage Gel will be applied topically to both eyes (OU) four times a day. Ocular Bandage Gel use is discontinued once complete re-epithelialization has occurred in that eye.
Device: Ocular Bandage Gel (OBG)
A modified form of the natural polymer hyaluronic acid, which is a gel that possesses unique physical and chemical properties such as hydrating and healing when applied to the ocular surface. The ability of CMHA-S to adhere longer to the ocular surface, resist degradation and protect the ocular surface makes it well-suited for treating various ocular surface injuries including surgical trauma.
Other Name: crosslinked thiolated carboxymethyl hyaluronic acid ("CMHA-S")
Bandage Contact Lens (BCL)
standard-of-care post-operative intervention following PRK. BCL (Acuvue® Oasys plano lens) applied OU. Bandage contact lens use is discontinued once complete re-epithelialization has occurred in that eye.
Device: Bandage Contact Lens (BCL)
A bandage contact lens protects an injured or diseased cornea from the mechanical rubbing of the blinking eyelids, therefore allowing it to heal. It is a normal (usually soft, but not always) contact lens has no power. It is not intended to improve your vision.
Other Name: Acuvue Oasys
- Complete corneal re-epithelialization on Day 3 [ Time Frame: Day 3 (72 hours) ]Evaluated by a masked reading center using digital photography of fluorescein stained slit lamp photos and image analysis. Proportion of eyes following PRK surgery with complete corneal re-epithelization of the epithelial defect on Day 3 and no recurrent erosions.
- Time to corneal re-epithelialization [ Time Frame: Day 3 (72 hours) ]Evaluated by a masked reading center using digital photography of fluorescein stained slit lamp photos and image analysis. Time to closure in eyes following PRK surgery with complete re-epithelialization and no recurrent erosions.
