When a person learns that it is necessary to have an eye removed the news creates understandable concern and apprehension. As Ocularists with 45 years of experience we understand the time it will take to adjust to how this situation will affect the person's life, appearance and ability to function.

 Today, thanks to remarkable advances by Ocularists and new ocular implants, the loss of an eye no longer has to mean the loss of a natural appearance. With the development of motility implants like the Bio-eye ® Ocular Implant, near normal eye motion is possible

 

Something that is often not considered at the beginning of an eye loss, but which becomes an important factor after surgery, is how one is going to look and deal with an ocular prosthesis (artificial eye), and most importantly the Ocularist you select to fit your prosthesis.  In most cases your ophthalmic surgeon will refer you to an Ocularist they have confidence in.  Having your doctor’s guidance at this time is very important to your ultimate result.  If your doctor is not acquainted with an Ocularist, we invite you to consult with our staff before you decide where to have your ocular prosthesis fit. 

 

Remember this, you are not alone...We created this Ocularist website to help you and provide you with useful information based on forty five years of experience.   We have fitted thousands of prosthetic eye patients from every part of the globe with ocular prostheses and flush fitting scleral shells allowing these patients to return to normal and active lives.  If needed we can help you find an ocular plastic surgeon where you live that can possibly provide you with eye motion to your ocular prosthesis. 

Please feel free to contact our office manager Russ Pierce to arrange an appointment for a consultation with our Board Certified Ocularist. Consultations include postoperative ocular prosthesis fitting, or the refitting of your current ocular prosthesis. 

Our mission is to serve the ocular prosthetic patient worldwide, using the latest ocularistry techniques available to create the most superb artistic and exceptional quality ocular prostheses and flush fitting scleral shells.
