What are the options for ocular prosthesis implant surgery?

Q:

My friend lost his eye when he was 4 years old. He is now 34 years old. I would like to inquire about the cost of having ocular prosthesis implant surgery please. I need to know the prices and what they offer for those prices. If this is not your area of expertise, please will you provide me with the details of a practice that can help us. I greatly appreciate your support in this, I really hope we can help him out.

A:

May I suggest you consider starting with American Society of Ocularists ( http://www.ocularist.org ). They most likely will be able to assist you and answer your questions.Best,
