John Stolpe Los Angeles Prosthetic Eyes
Looking for the best Prosthetic eyes in Los Angeles?
The office of John Stolpe offers the best Prosthetic Eyes in Los Angeles. John Stolpe is proud that his grandfather pioneered the shift in artificial eyes from glass to acrylic.
Artificial eyes date back to ancient times. Pharaohs would have an eye removed and replaced with gold eyes so people would think they were gods. More recently, Artificial Eyes were made solely of glass in the 1600s.
Frederick Lewis was serving as an army medic in WWII when he began his work as an ocularist. He pioneered the acrylic eye which has several advantages over glass eyes. Firstly, acrylic prosthetic eyes can be custom fit precisely to a patient. Secondly, these eyes do not shatter. Thirdly, acrylic eyes can incorporate digital prints.

Advanced Artificial Prosthetic Eyes
We make Prosthetic Eyes that help patients
Above all, John Stolpe, and his entire staff pride themselves on empathy and integrity. It is unfortunate that many people who have suffered eye trauma or cosmetic challenges do not know how much los angeles prosthetic eyes can help them. A prosthetic eye can improve the appearance of the affected eye socket. For most people it is vastly preferable to wearing an eye patch or bandage.
If the entire eye is removed, an ocular implant and prosthesis prevent the tissues in the eye socket from growing to fill the empty space. A prosthetic eye cannot restore vision. After removal of the natural eye and placement of a prosthetic eye, a person will have no vision in that eye. We believe that our office is a key place to begin to understand prosthetic eyes. Therefore, we invite you to set up a consultation today to learn how we can help you regain comfort and joy in everything you do.
