We don't save lives,
We change them.
Handmade glass & acrylic bespoke
ocular prosthetic devices made in the UK.
Meet your new Ocularist!
During your initial consultation, we will examine the condition of your socket and your current prosthesis (if you have one). This will help us determine whether or not you require any surgical intervention prior to the prosthesis being made. If this is the case, we will put you in contact with surgeons that will help you.
We'll also take this opportunity to answer any questions you may have and manage your expectations. The artificial eye we will craft you will be state-of-the-art and will look as close to your human eye as we can possibly achieve. However, it will never be an exact replica or a perfect replacement for a human eye and it is important to understand this.
"Living With No Eyes"
An inspiring interview with Matthew...
Meet Matthew, an inspiring and optimistic young man who was born with bilateral anophthalmia.
In this short interview, Matthew shows us that living with no eyes doesn't mean living with no life!
We hope you join us in celebrating this wonderful chap and his accomplishments.
Losing an eye...
To most people, losing an eye is unfathomable. However, if you're reading this it is likely you yourself have recently lost an eye, or maybe you know someone who has. Either way, this is an enormous change in your life and there are lots of new things to learn and plenty of things to re-learn... Simple things like pouring a drink or buttering toast become quite an 'interesting' experience, but trust us when we say: you will adapt and you will thrive. The human brain is a remarkable thing and the human spirit is even more astonishing.
Our eyes are how we connect with one another and many even say that “the eyes are a window to the soul ”.
But, they’re not the only window to your soul... Your kindness, your humour, your love, even your weaknesses are what makes you, you. It's important to remember that as you begin your 'new normal' life.
Here at John Pacey-Lowrie Limited in Nottingham, UK, we have seen hundreds of patients that have lost an eye due to disease or trauma. As Ocularists it is our job to fit, paint and fabricate bespoke prosthetic eyes. We have extensive knowledge of the human eye and eye socket and can quickly detect any problem that needs to be addressed by your optometrist (eye doctor).
We've been creating prosthetic eyes for infants, children, teenagers, adults and the elderly for over a decade; hundreds of people who have suffered similar trauma's, all from different backgrounds, have walked in-and-out of our clinic doors and have continued to live their lives with a smile on their faces.
We may not be able to bring your human eye back but we will do our best to replicate your existing eye and restore some of that confidence you may have lost.
