Treatment – PROSE Service

PROSEPROSE therapy reduces symptoms, supports healing and improves vision through the use of a prosthetic scleral device that is tailored for each individual. Literature has demonstrated that patients who have received this pioneering treatment experience a notable improvement in their quality of vision and quality of life as a result

Our clinicians are expertly trained in PROSE technology, which originated at the Boston Foundation for Sight, in Needham, MA. The USC Roski Eye Institute is the third of 12 sites in the nation to offer this service. The clinic is supervised by, Jonathan C. Song, MD, MBA, and Gloria Chiu, OD, FAAO, FSLS, Boston Sight PROSE Clinical Fellow.

Please ask your eye care provider for a referral if you are seeking PROSE treatment. PROSE therapy is a long-term investment, as it requires multiple visits that involve preliminary consultation to determine candidacy, customized fitting, training on use and maintenance of the scleral device, and routine follow up visits.
