P.E.I. man hopes to regain vision through treatment in Boston


Derek Morrison, right, says watching his brother Paul go the past six years without eye sight "pulls at your heart strings''. Surgery in Boston next month, though, may restore Paul's vision.

PROSE treatment

Here is a look at the PROSE treatment Paul Morrison will undergo at the Boston Foundation for Sight in hopes of restoring his sight.

• Treatment takes about four to 12 days to complete with patients typically spending seven to eight hours at the clinic.

• Patients are encouraged to bring a family member (Morrison’s mother, Marion, is making the trip).

• The treatment process includes designing, fabricating and fitting multiple trial devices, each step followed by a wearing session, in order to achieve the best fit possible.

• The treatment process also includes at least three training sessions in the care of prosthetic devices.
