    AEO Congress 2011

    We are proud to inform you that Kanti had his first foray into public speaking at the weekend, and not one to do it by halves, he jumped right in at the deep end addressing nearly one hundred delegates at the Association Of European Ocularists in The Hague, Netherlands. His topic was ‘Ocular Prosthetics With Vision.’ Using his own case study, he explained how he created a hyper-thin prosthetic shell to conceal unsightly pigmentations on the sclera caused by a condition called nevus of the ota, whilst enhancing the patient’s vision.

    Finding the Right Colour Glasses For You

    Over the next few weeks I am going to write about some of the key features in choosing a new pair of glasses. Often I am asked how do you choose the colour of frames that are right for you so today I thought I would focus on that element. Firstly I would say it comes down to the patient themselves. If they are happy with their choice in the first place then that to me is paramount. Most people will have an idea of what they want already whether it be to stick to the tried and trusted, a subtle change of image or to go out on a limb to the completely different from a previous pair of glasses, in terms of colour. There is necessarily no hard and fast rules out there. In actual fact if you pay heed to the style advisors you may end up more confused than ever.

    Using Technology to Create the Perfect Prosthetic Eye

    Over the course of 20 years in creating prosthetic eyes one of the most significant things I have noticed is the advancement in technology in all aspects of the creation of eyes. Acrylic materials have progressed at a rapid pace in terms of quality,hardiness and appearance, all in the development of a more realistic and comfortable ocular prosthesis. These advances in technology have meant that the loss of an eye need no longer mean the loss of a natural appearance to the wearer and today’s ocular prosthesis is carefully matched, comfortable and cosmetically pleasing.

    Contact Lenses of the Unique Type

    What might be less known is that Kanti here at eyeform specializes in unique or hard to make contact lenses as well. These hard or rigid gas permeable lenses are made specifically for a patient according to their unique needs. In addition haptic lenses can be made for those who have keratoconous or similar cases of complex corneas. These we will require appointments in consultation with Kanti where the patient and optician will work in conjunction to produce the best results. Often this will take a number of appointments, discussion and time itself in order to achieve the optimal results. If you feel that this is a service you could benefit from or use then please contact us via phone or through the website.

    Caring for an Ocular Prosthesis

    Always use clean hands when handling your prosthesis. Check your surroundings to make sure the prosthesis won’t be damaged or lost if it is accidentally dropped. Remove the prosthesis only as necessary to clean or as often as directed. Too much handling can cause irritation to your socket and excess drainage.
