Karen DeLoss, O.D., FAAO

BostonSight® PROSE Clinical Fellow

Dr. Karen DeLoss graduated from Illinois College of Optometry in May 2008. She then went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship in cornea and contact lenses at the University of Houston College Of Optometry in Houston, TX, where she received the George W. Mertz Contact Lens Residency award. During her fellowship, Dr. DeLoss worked with referral patients, specializing in complex contact lens design and fit for individuals with a wide variety of corneal conditions. She also assisted in clinical trials and conducted independent research; this research was presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology and was published in Contact Lens and Anterior Eye.

Currently, Dr. DeLoss is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan, Department of Ophthalmology, Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She primarily treats patients using the PROSE treatment model but also specializes in specialty fit contact lenses. Dr. DeLoss completed the BostonSight® PROSE Clinical Fellowship in 2010.

What patients say about Dr. Karen DeLoss

"We are so pleased and thankful for the wonderful, dedicated care that our son has received and the opportunities that PROSE has given our child....When all hope was just about lost, Dr. DeLoss and PROSE gave us hope again. Thank you!"

"Dr. DeLoss was wonderful. During my initial consultation, she answered all my questions and she explained what the device could do for me. She also spoke with me about expectations. And my expectations have been met... I’m seeing better than 20/20.”
