This course is aimed at those who are in the early stages of their career in ocular prosthetics as well as experienced practitioners who are looking to learn up-to-date methodology. It will be very useful for dental/maxillo-facial technicians, optometric practitioners, ophthalmic nurses and ophthalmic doctors.
- Course Description
- This course allows you to have hands on experience in design and fitting the prosthesis to an empty socket.A full demonstration of impression taking, model making, wax pouring and sculpture will be provided. This will be followed by a demonstration in fitting the pattern to the socket, wax carving and iris positioning. You will be expected to complete these stages on a head model during the two days under supervision. You will leave the course with a basic knowledge of fitting the prosthesis and how to recreate and practice this experience in your own place of work.This is a unique opportunity to fast track to the next stage, which will be to produce a bespoke prosthesis by hand painting the iris, manufacture and sclera tinting and vessel application. This is the only course in the UK that both demonstrates these unique skills and encourages practical involvement.
