The Orbital Prosthesis: Artificial Eye with Silicone Restoration

“I would give them 10 stars if I could… They changed my life with their work, which is perfection. By making my prosthetic eye, they have allowed me to get back into life and start living again. No one can tell which of my eyes are not my own.

The Medical Art Prosthetics Network

The Medical Art Prosthetics (MAP) Network brings together an expert team of anaplastologists and ocularists located across the United States. The MAP Network screening process for participating providers ensures a level of quality and excellence in prosthetics that delivers the best possible outcome for the patient.

We have established a new model to help patients access the nation’s most capable and committed prosthetics specialists. This network brings the experience and skills of independent ocularists, facial prosthetists, and silicone restoration specialists into a national network for the benefit of patients. Medical Art Prosthetics has identified qualified practitioners with facilities across the country where patients will find the artistic prosthetic specialist they require.

Finding an ocularist with the technical expertise and artistic ability needed to create a finished prosthesis that is indistinguishable from the original eye is a very difficult task. We know from 35 years in the prosthetic arts that patients who need an ocular prosthesis (artificial eye) often go with the provider who is closest to their home. This might lead to an artificial eye that is very disappointing in its color accuracy and aesthetic realism or one that is not comfortable to wear. Ocularistry is a highly demanding specialty, and results vary greatly between providers.

The goal of the Medical Art Prosthetics Network is to help patients and physicians identify the ocularist who is conveniently located for the patient AND who possesses the credentials and experience to deliver the highest quality results in an established specialized facility.
