Ocularist

Patients have ranged from the tiniest of babies to the elderly. They may be victims of rosebushes, fireworks or birth defects. Despite the state of medical reimbursement, we take the time to get to know each of our patients and personalize each eye with a tiny drawing chosen by the patient.

Based in Portland, Oregon and representing a profession of less than 150 board-certified ocularists in the United States, the Center strives to combine both science and fine art. For more information, please visit the Center's website: www.centerforocularprosthetics.com

"Putting aside the stressful sad experience of John having to have his left eye extracted, the next procedure of having a prosthesis skillfully made, was a beautiful and interesting time in both of our lives. We thank you so much for your expertise, talent and for caring."

Jean

"Just a note to let you know Bob is doing extremely well with his prosthesis. It is so comfortable he forgets he has it in. We are so pleased with the results. You and your staff made the entire experience pleasurable and we expected it to be a somewhat grueling and unpleasant experience, we must admit. Thanks for being such nice people."
