About the BOS-P PROSE treatment process:

Steps in the Treatment Process

• Referral from consultant, medical doctor or cornea specialist (from Sankara Nethralaya or outside clinics and hospitals)
• Initial consultation visit – to review the suitability of the device.
• PROSE treatment (10-15 day-long visits) or set of 2-4 days visit with intervals.
• Periodic follow-up visits as required during first 6 months.
• Annual medical evaluation of PROSE treatment.

The same device can be used as long as the device is in good quality and as long as the eye parameters are remaining the same.
