You care | we care | eye care
Artificial Eye Aid & Care has been specializing in the making and fitting of custom made artificial eyes and haptic shells (scleral shells) over blinded eyes since 1999. We have established practices countrywide with main offices at Pretoria, Vanderbijlpark, Klerksdorp, Bloemfontein, East London & George . . .
The process of making and fitting custom artificial eyes and haptic shells are long and intensive. Patients should be prepared for a full day appointment. The first step will be to take an impression of the socket and construct a model. The model will be adjusted in accordance with the shape and size of the normal eye. Further measurements are done on the model before it is moulded to manufacture the prosthesis. The color of the eye is hand-painted while the patient sits with the ocularist.
We know that you as the patient require the best possible results when you visit an ocularist. Information regarding our procedures are also required by patients. We understand that losing your eye was traumatic and that the sense of normality needs to be restored as soon as possible.
We as a practice understand the difficult journey that patients endure as we have traveled this road with patients many times.
We will therefore do everything within our ability to facilitate a positive journey and a desired outcome through our professional service.
We utilise the latest technology and procedures to obtain the best possible results. Part of our after care we offer extensive training in eye and socket maintenance. As a practice, we interact on your behalf with the medical aid. We also cater for patients that are not members of a medical aid.
