Hello everyone,

I am new here and love this website. I lost my left eye at the birth due to car accident my mom was in when she was pregnant.

I am wondering if someone knows if there is an ocularist in Canada that works with Bio-eye? The only place I could find in Canada is eye institute of Ottawa but it's hard to get a hold of someone. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello New Guy and welcome to Lost Eye. I can't help you, but I know that there are quite a few people from Canada on this site. I'm sure one of them can help! :)

I don't know if they offer the bio-eye implant, but check with Webb Prosthetics in Toronto. I've heard very good things, and have been impressed myself with my limited dealings with them.

Thank you all.

soft_whisperss I am doing some research for now. I have an old artifical eye and is much smaller than my good eye. I am looking into different possibilities to see what's out there. I've heard some good things about bio-eye implant, but I may be mistaken. The biggest thing for me would be to get a movable artifical eye.

Thanks again.

My surgeon didn't recoomend the peg for a different reason. She said with the shape of my eyelids, the peg would move the prosthetic too far and you'd start to see the edges of it when I looked extremely hard to either side....which would be wierd to say the least :)

Most eye surgeons use the coral implants nowadays so you shouldn't have a problem.
