Meet the Ocularist

An Ocularist makes and fits artificial eyes. Our aim at Moorfields Eye Hospital Abu Dhabi is to create a hand-crafted eye with a very natural look indistinguishable from the real eye. Made from acrylic, these artificial eyes are very strong, easy to maintain and are comfortable to wear. The Ocularist also provides a polishing and repair service.
