    Gloria B. Chiu, OD, FAAO completed her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley in 2004. She remained at the University of California, Berkeley where she obtained her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2008. Following completion of her residency in Cornea and Contact lenses at Southern California College of Optometry, Dr. Chiu pursued further fellowship training in PROSE treatment at the Boston Foundation for Sight. Alongside Dr. Jonathan C. Song, Dr. Chiu supervises the USC PROSE Clinic and is actively conducting research in this area.

    Investigation of the efficacy of PROSE treatment at the USC Roski Eye Institute in Los Angeles by conducting a prospective evaluation of data from patients who were fit with the PROSE devices. This data will be helpful to physicians and clinicians who are in search of additional forms of treatment for intractable ocular surface and corneal abnormalities
