happy eyes

Hurray, my PROSE lenses are back at last. After a week and a half of squinting and grimacing, I am soooo relieved.

What are prose eyes and why are they called 'happy eyes'

PROSE are specially designed scleral lenses - that is, extra large gas permeable lenses that vault over the cornea and hold a layer of fluid over the cornea. They are used to treat certain vision problems and in some cases severe dry eye. - In my case, both.

Hi, Glad you're "eyes" arrived! I've been in touch with people at Hopkins about the PROSE lenses. They have been amazing; extremely dedicated and helpful. Unfortunately my cornea doctor said he feels I wouldn't be successful with them due to significant scarring in both eyes. The lenses sound like paradise.
