Adult Patients

It might be very recent or something that feels like it happened a very long time ago by now — but the loss you have suffered from cancer, sudden retinal detachment, an accident, or many other traumatic events is important to us. We want to spend some time getting to know you and what happened. We want to hear all of your questions and whatever concerns you might have. And, we want to help you realize some good news: you do not need to live without a beautiful eye that feels and looks great. Explore our custom prosthetic eye process, or read about corneal scleral shells and frequently asked questions. 


Mom, Dad, one of the most difficult — and rewarding — parts of our work is sitting with families that are trying to find the best care for their child. If your newborn has microphthalmia or anophthalmia you might be in a whirlwind of heartache and tough decisions right now. We serve children of all ages with a wide range of needs, however. We can help you and your child with excellent care, clear guidance, and some of the most empathetic, kid-friendly ocularists you will find anywhere! Read about the microphthalmia socket therapy we have successfully used with amazing results for many, many families. 


As healthcare professionals, we know how much the referrals (in both directions) and connections your practice has with other providers matter. We love to connect with ocular oncologists, retina or corneal specialists, oculoplastic surgeons, and other specialists who have also made an exceptional commitment to patient care and service. You work hard to make sure your patients have everything they need and that your skills are only complimented and amplified by all the services we provide in our office.
