JANICE YEOMAN BOptom(Hons), MSc(Hons) Optometrist | Ocular Prosthetist

Welcome to the New Zealand Prosthetic Eye Service

As well as being a gateway to our services, this website provides patients and caregivers with information about how prosthetic eyes and scleral shells are fitted and maintained, and about living with a prosthetic eye. Our ongoing prosthetic eye research is also reported on this site.

Keith Pine specialises exclusively in ocular prosthetics. He is an honorary Research Fellow with the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Auckland and a member of the Institute of Maxillofacial Prosthetists and Technologists in the UK. He and his co-authors have published over 20 scientific papers on prosthetic eyes and the world’s first peer-reviewed textbook on prosthetic eyes.

Janice Yeoman graduated top of her Optometry class in 2007. She has a Masters degree in optometry and was a Professional Teaching Fellow with the School of Optometry, University of Auckland. She enjoys the crossover between optometry and ocular prosthetics and brings enthusiasm, caring, research skills and knowledge to these fields.

The terms “artificial eye” and “prosthetic eye” mean the same but with the development of artificial sight we now prefer the term “prosthetic eye” to describe our work.
