Narrative

Transforms the understanding, treatment, and care of complex corneal disease. Comprehensive medical services and a Patient and Community Support Center available on site.

BostonSight PROSE (prosthetic replacement of the ocular surface ecosystem) is a medical treatment pioneered by BostonSight that restores visual function, supports healing, reduces symptoms, and improves life for patients suffering with complex corneal disease.  PROSE treatment uses FDA approved custom designed and fabricated prosthetic devices to replace or support impaired ocular surface functions. 

During treatment doctors customize prosthetic devices for each patient's condition and unique eye shape.  Prosthetic devices for each patient's condition and unique eye shape are manufactured on site in our state of the art Manufacturing Lab.  BostonSight PROSE treatment uses the only scleral lens prosthetic devices that are approved by the FDA for therapeutic indications.
