What is the PROSE Device?
The PROSE device is a transparent dome made of an oxygen permeable plastic that rests on the white part of the eye, sclera, and vaults over the cornea. It is filled with a preservative-free saline and inserted in the eye, which provides constant lubrication to the cornea. It provides a smooth surface over an irregular, damaged, or diseased cornea which can promote visual function and improve ocular comfort.
The PROSE Device for Ocular Surface Diseases
Ocular surface disease (OSD) can be caused by a multitude of etiologies and, when severe, can lead to debilitating symptoms. Some conditions that may benefit from PROSE treatment are, but not limited to, keratoconus, corneal transplantation, LASIK complications, Stevens-Johnsons Syndrome, and Sjogren’s syndrome.
