An Ocularist is a thoroughly trained professional skilled in the art of fitting, painting and fabricating custom ocular prostheses. In addition to creating custom ocular prostheses, and providing long-term care through periodic examinations, an ocularist provides the patient with complete instructions on the care and maintenance of their prosthesis.
I started my journey to become an ocularist while I was about 14 years old when I read a Readers Digest book my mum come with from a foreign trip. It had a story of a kid who lost an eye, and he got one painted and custom-made for him. The dream went to ‘sleep’ for some years. When I finished medical school, I had thoughts of majoring in ophthalmology surgery (eye surgery) in the US.
We take great passion in creating solutions that can give you so much confidence and encouragement in a situation that can at times be very difficult. We are all highly motivated professionals, constantly working to produce prostheses, the best each time we do it. We remain well connected with those in our industry, to evolve in the best we can be while learning from others.
