Welcome to the New Zealand Prosthetic eye service
The terms “artificial eyes” and “prosthetic eyes” mean the same but as artificial sight is beginning to be developed we now prefer the term “prosthetic eyes” to describe our work.
Dr Keith Pine has over 30 years of experience making and fitting prosthetic eyes and as a Research Fellow with the School of Optometry and Vision Science, University of Auckland, he has published 8 scientific papers and the world’s first evidence based textbook on prosthetic eyes.
As well as being a gateway to our services, this website aims to provide both patients and referrers with information about how prosthetic eyes and scleral shell prostheses are fitted and maintained, and general advice about living with prosthetic eyes, prosthetic eye history and the latest research.
