Ocularists Association of Australia

As you can imagine in the specialised field of making eye prostheses, you don’t often get a chance to talk shop. Nine years ago the Ocularists Association of Australia formed and gave us our first opportunity to get together. Over time relationships in the association have strengthened and together we have established ourselves as the leading authority on artificial eyes in Australia.

We have collaborated with several ophthalmologists to produce a brochure on the maintenance of eye prostheses. We have also written a brochure Going Home After Surgery. It is hoped that this will provide valuable information and reassurance to people waiting to be fitted with their first eye prosthesis.

The members of the Ocularists Association of Australia are committed to matching our excellent standards of craftsmanship with the most up to date resources and effective patient support networks. I feel very proud to be a founding member.
