When a person learns that it is necessary to have an eye removed the news creates understandable concern and apprehension. As Ocularists with decades of years of experience we understand the time it will take to adjust to how this situation will affect the person's life, appearance and ability to function.

Something that is often not considered at the beginning of an eye loss, but which becomes an important factor after surgery, is how one is going to look and deal with an ocular prosthesis (artificial eye), and most importantly the Ocularist you select to fit your prosthesis.  In most cases your ophthalmic surgeon will refer you to an Ocularist they have confidence in.  Having your doctor’s guidance at this time is very important to your ultimate result.  If your doctor is not acquainted with an Ocularist, we invite you to consult with Erik Kolberg and our staff before you decide where to have your ocular prosthesis fit. 

The Kolberg Ocularist firm has built this website to provide information for the ocular prosthetic patient. This site and the world wide patient support it contains, will provide you not only with a source of encouragement, but indeed offers many good reasons to have optimism about your life for now and the future to come. 

Take a few moments to review the patients stories.   After reading the individual experiences of others, we are sure you will find a story that relates to your own personal circumstances.  We encourage you to correspond with your counterparts around the world since many of them have been through eye loss and share your feelings.  FYI: People change their e-mail addresses so you may find the e-mail links we have may no longer function.

Remember this, you are not alone...We created this Ocularist website to help you and provide you with useful information based on forty five years (plus) of experience.   We have fitted thousands of prosthetic eye patients from every part of the globe with ocular prostheses and flush fitting scleral shells allowing these patients to return to normal and active lives. 

Please feel free to contact our office manager Russ Pierce to arrange an appointment for a consultation with our Board Certified Ocularists. Consultations include postoperative ocular prosthesis fitting, or the refitting of your current ocular prosthesis.  Our mission is to serve the ocular prosthetic patient worldwide, using the latest ocularistry techniques available to create the most superb artistic and exceptional quality ocular prostheses and flush fitting scleral shells.
