Custom Made Prosthetic Eyes
An artificial eye is an ocular prosthesis that is worn full-time, restoring the volume and appearance of a missing eye. At Erickson Labs Northwest, each prosthetic eye is custom-made using the patient as a model. This personalized approach results in symmetry, maximized movement and an exact color match. We make every effort to ensure each patient receives the best possible ocular prosthesis and cosmetic result. With advanced techniques, we focus on matching contours and folds of the eye lids, amount of movement and color of the natural eye to create a prosthetic eye. Patients report that artificial eyes are quite comfortable, greatly improving self-esteem and their sense of wholeness.
Our two board certified ocularists, Christie and Todd, specialize in creating custom artificial eyes (also known as ocular prostheses, prosthetic eyes, acrylic eyes, fake eyes or previously glass eyes). Our lab is situated in Kirkland, WA and we serve patients in the Pacific Northwest and all over the US.
