What to Expect During Your First Visit

We look forward to walking alongside you and your family through designing your natural looking eye. At your first visit you will learn about each step in the design process. A socket examination will be completed to ensure proper healing of your tissue. Our Ocularists will answer all your questions and assure you that you can trust our team with your care.

Our Patient Care Coordinators will be your advocates throughout the whole process, from acquiring referrals and authorizations, to filing insurance claims and providing support for your continued care. They will also be involved with your in-office care, from a warm welcome to training you on how to care for your prosthesis.
