YOUR SAFETY IS OUR CONCERN:
Our practise now includes two air purifiers with UV-C and HEPA filters. The UV-C light is a form of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation, capable of killing bacteria, viruses, mould and other pathogens.
The HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filter is capable of removing particles as small as 0.3 microns which are invisible to the eye; this includes protection against the COVID-19 or Corona virus. The filter is also able to trap pollen, pet dander, dust mites and tobacco smoke.
Custom Eyes has fitted hundreds of prosthetic eyes to patients from across Africa, with most patients being from Southern Africa, and as far-reaching as the UK and Australia. The practice has been in operation for over 40 years and is passionate about helping patients develop a healthy self-image that is often lost when one loses or is born without an eye.
“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”- Anais Nin
What can we do for you…
We have worked with patients from all walks of life.
All our patients perform their daily tasks as ably as persons having two natural eyes. When it comes to children, especially in their formative years, a well crafted and fitted prosthetic eye not only adds to their self-image, but also influences growth of the facial bones to provide facial symmetry.

“I am nervous about having a prosthetic eye fitted…”
Growing accustomed to an artificial eye may be a difficult adjustment for a patient. There is no need to despair! Our team has worked with many successful prosthetic eye wearers who adapt to their new eye and can’t imagine their lives without it!
