Our Services

Our team’s approach in the fabrication of our prosthetics is to significantly improve the life of every patient we treat.
This is not just our goal, it is our highest aspiration.

At Specialty Facial we hold in the highest regard our quality craftsmanship and exceptional service. With over 96 years of combined experience, we specialize in Ocular and Maxillofacial prosthetics. We combine the dependability of traditional methods alongside the most current technological advancements in the prosthetics field. We are a Board Certified Ocularist Facility that understands our profession is not only a medical science, but that it is an artform that is continuously expanding and evolving.

We are the pioneer of the dilating eye, the LaFuente expanding Conformer, as well as the Facial Reconstruction Splint. We pride ourselves in personally hand fitting each of our prosthetics to the comfort of the patient. We work closely with your physician, to achieve the best overall fit, quality craftsmanship, and aesthetic design to fit each individual patient’s specific needs.

Custom Ocular Prosthesis

Our custom made craniofacial prosthesis most naturally resembles the patient’s natural absent eye. Our highly experienced Ocularists will begin by taking an impression of the anophthalmic socket with a cool molden wax. This process only takes a few minutes and is performed with compassion for our patient’s comfort. Our staff will guide the patient through the step by step process to help ensure the ease of the process. The prosthesis is molded and shaped by our Ocularists to fit the patient’s individual socket. Every Iris is individually hand painted to accurately reflect the unique beauty in each patient’s natural eye. Most of our prostheses are made the same day as the patient’s appointment. We do this to accommodate minimal travel time for the best convenience and preference.

Scleral Shell

A scleral Shell is a thin prosthetic eye constructed to fit over a living disfigured or blind eye. The shell will cover the entirety of the disfigured eye, enhancing the natural appearance. This same day process is done by carefully painting and shaping the scleral shell to comfortably fit and complement the natural look of the patient’s eye. The unique shell will retain movement of the existing eye and slightly resembles a contact lense. It can be worn on a continuous basis, even while sleeping. Our Ocularists will walk our patients through the relatively easy maintenance and care of the prosthetic.

Cleaning & Polishing of Ocular Prosthesis

We recommend that a patient’s prosthetic eye be polished every six months, if not sooner. Our gentle, swift process helps maintain the comfortability and health of the prosthetic and socket. When a patient is in need of a professional polish, they may experience symptoms such as irritability, discomfort, redness, itching, increased sensitivity, and/or discharge. Keeping up on regular polishing will also help to remove any surface imperfections and bacteria on the prosthetic, as well as improving the overall appearance. Maintaining a healthy polishing regime will also give our Ocularists the ability to examine the patient’s socket and discuss any concerns or questions they may have.

Maxillofacial Prosthetics

Maxillofacial Prosthetics involve the rehabilitation of a patient’s eye, ear, nose, or orbital prosthesis containing an ocular prosthetic. These are removable prosthetics hand crafted to allow the patient to maintain hygienic and immaculate care of their prosthetic. We care deeply about restoring our patient’s way of life by creating custom natural looking and custom fitting pieces. We work closely with our patient’s ENT, maxillofacial surgeon, speech pathologist, anaplastologist, and neurologist to improve every patient’s quality of life.
