About Us

BostonSight® Manufacturing Lab

BostonSight PROSE devices are manufactured at BostonSight’s state-of-the-art manufacturing lab. BostonSight PROSE Clinical Fellows directly access a proprietary web-based platform and Design to Fit® (DTF) software, which interfaces with two Precitech Nanoform high precision lathes that are capable of cutting complex prosthetic device configurations to precise tolerances. This sophisticated system enables BostonSight PROSE doctors anywhere in the U.S. to design customized devices for their patients and have them delivered the next day.

The lab is also equipped with modern measuring and processing equipment, including Plasma Surface Treatment capabilities which improve PROSE device surface wettability. The highly trained staff includes a Director of Engineering, a Director of Lab Operations and Quality Systems, and four lab technicians. They produce more than 10,000 medical devices per year for the Needham clinic and BostonSight Network Providers.

Since 2017, the BostonSight Manufacturing Lab is also the manufacturer of BostonSight SCLERAL lenses, which are ordered by licensed optometrists and specialty lens fitters through FitConnect, their proprietary online fitting and order management system.
