In our Beverly Hills and Orange County, California practices Ocularist Carole Lewis, B. C. O. offers extremely natural prosthetic artificial eyes.
Our history of innovation in creating artificial prosthetic eyes dates back over a half-century. During World War II, Germany cut off the supply of glass artificial eyes. The United States Army Medical Corps responded by instituting a program to develop and deliver plastic prosthetic eyes to servicemen. Frederick Lewis was chosen to be part of that program.
The resulting research and development proved that new acrylic materials could replace the old glass eye technology. The acrylics lend themselves to more precise fitting because they can be molded from detailed impressions. In addition, properly detailed acrylic artificial eyes look more realistic, last longer, and are more comfortable due in part to their lighter weight.
Today the family continues the art of realistic artificial eye making. Together they persist in challenging the industry to ever-higher standards. They are committed to innovation, resourcefulness, and excellence in delivering realistic looking artificial eyes and scleral shell prosthesis.
