About Us

We envision a world where no one has to suffer needlessly with corneal disease.

Boston Foundation for Sight (BFS) is a world renowned nonprofit eye health care organization founded in 1992 by Perry Rosenthal, MD. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for patients and their families by transforming the understanding, treatment and care of complex corneal disease.

Our Center of Excellence in Needham, MA, employs a staff of 45 and includes a world-class Medical Institute staffed with cornea specialists, ophthalmologists, specialty-trained optometrists and clinical technicians. A state-of-the-art BostonSight® PROSE Manufacturing Lab, a Clinical Research Center and a Patient and Community Support Center are also on site.

We enjoy educational partnerships with the renowned Massachusetts Eye and Ear and the New England College of Optometry. Each year Cornea Fellows and Optometry Residents are educated in the latest treatment and join our medical staff in cutting-edge clinical research.

Compassionate care is at the heart of our approach to patients and their families. We strive to make the entire experience as supportive and healing as possible.
