Our Contact Lens Service is the only Chicago area provider and one of only eleven sites in the United States which offers the BostonSight PROSE treatment to restore the sight of patients with complex corneal disease so that they can reclaim their lives. During PROSE treatment doctors custom design and fit prosthetic devices to replace or support damaged ocular functions; improving vision and reducing pain and light sensitivity.
- Reduces symptoms and supports healing by restoring a healthy ocular surface environment
- Improves blurry vision by masking surface corneal irregularities and transmitting a sharp image to the back of the eye
- Prevents damage by protecting the cornea against the environment and eyelids
For thousands of patients with conditions such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), ocular chronic graft versus host disease (GVHD), dry eye syndrome, Sjogren’s syndrome, keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, ocular trauma, or post- LASIK, or post- transplant dry eye or poor vision, PROSE can be the ideal, and sometimes only, treatment capable of restoring vision and dramatically reducing symptoms such as eye pain, severe dry eye, blurry vision and light sensitivity.
