Artificial Eyes Goes International – Launch of our new web site

We are proud to announce the launch of our new international web site artificialeyes.net

The aim of this new site is to provide artificial eye resources to people all around the world.

About one thousand people from many countries around the globe visit our current Australian site each month. But our resources are not always relevant to them. That’s why we wanted to set up an international site, a one-stop shop for anyone with an artificial eye.

Currently on Artificial Eyes you can:

The international site is still under development. Another of our major aims is to encourage the formation of artificial eye support groups around the world.

So in the future, you will find:

  • Information and helpful tips about setting up support groups; and
  • Free profiling of support groups.

We are also happy to contact ocularists to explain the benefits of support groups and how they can be involved. A support group doesn’t need to be huge; it can be half a dozen people getting together over coffee to talk about their experiences.

In Western Australia we have seen the growth of the Arteyes group. Arteyes started as a Yahoo chat group. The group holds two events every year. A picnic and a bowling day. There are often eighty to one hundred people who turn up to the events. The feedback we receive indicates that there is a need for the group and there would be real benefits in other places for similar groups.

We would love to hear your ideas about what you would like on the site.

So please have a look at artificialeyes.net

Funny thing is that so many people would ask, “Can you see in that eye OK now?”
