I developed an infection behind my artificial eye, two years ago. It was so severe that surgery was the only way to remove it. Unfortunately, along with the infection, the implant that gave my eye volume and movement, had to be removed as well. I spent 2 years with only a conformer, but it was noticeable. I finally went to see Marie who came up with a solution that is both natural and more appealing. Thanks Marie.
Having my blind and painful eye removed was a life altering decision. To spend my days working and playing without pain is something I have not known for years. My new eye is very comfortable and my family, friends and co-workers are surprised at the quality and how perfectly it matches my natural eye.
I was eight years overdue for a replacement artificial eye. I wasn't aware of the slow facial changes that took place creating misplaced angles and position of my prosthesis because I resigned myself to the one I had. Rob clarified my concerns and the reality that I was living with an old prosthesis, when a better result could be achieved with a new eye. He put an end to a number of my misplaced concerns as we came up with an approach tailored to my realities. The new prosthesis has allowed me to interact with people with a renewed confidence and personal comfort, that to me is priceless. He made the eye with a modern technique that creates a perfect fit and comfort. I don't know what more I could have asked for! Thanks, Rob!
After moving to Victoria from Toronto, I was in need of a new artificial eye and was recommended to Marie Allen at the Eye Clinic.
I have had many artificial eyes since childhood and this is one of the most comfortable and beautiful looking eyes. I work in the public and feel very confident with my eye. Marie is wonderful to work with and makes you feel very comfortable.
