Education & Research

Educating the Next Generation of
Cornea Specialists

Every year, Cornea Fellows from the world - renowned Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE) come to BostonSight® for a rotation, under the supervision of Medical Director Deborah S. Jacobs, M.D.  During this time, they learn more about the treatment of complex corneal disease. They learn about all facets of our treatment model, and about our collaborative, patient-centered approach to care. The Fellows also have opportunity to see patients with Dr. Jacobs in her BostonSight practice, which is devoted to BostonSight PROSE treatment; and they participate in clinical research projects under Dr. Jacobs' supervision, leading to presentation at scientific meetings and publication.

Dr. Jacobs has served as member of the Cornea Service Faculty since 2008. She staffs a clinic at MEE twice monthly in which patients are referred by other MEE docs for consideration for BostonSight PROSE treatment.


"Before I received PROSE last January, I had not been able to work for six months and almost lost my home. I was severely depressed and did not leave the house, unless to go to a doctor...I have been back to work for almost a year now, and am so thankful for everything BFS has done and for giving me my life back."
