With extensive pediatric experience we also create ocular prostheses for infants and children. This includes custom fitting for eye loss due to Retinoblastoma, congenital microphthalmia or any congenital anomaly that indicates the need for a prosthetic eye. With innovative and proven designs we have performed successful conformer therapy on the most severe cases of congenital anophthalmia/ microphthalmia and have tracked our progress for decades.
In the event of a traumatic injury, cancer resection, or congenital condition such as microtia, an alternative to surgery is a prosthetic silicone restoration.
