Stephen Haddad, B.C.O., B.A.D.O., has extensive experience in fabricating prosthetic eyes for ocular implants with motility pegs. Ocular implants such as Hydroxyapatite and MedPor are made of a porous material that can receive a peg attachment, which can then be integrated with the prosthetic eye. This procedure greatly enhances the movement of the ocular prosthesis.
Peg integration requires a minor surgical procedure in which the ophthalmologist creates a small hole in the front of the orbital implant and inserts a titanium screw. The remaining procedure of attaching the peg to the ocular prosthesis is performed by an ocularist.
Our team of board certified ocularists are available to provide you with a complete consultation of the advantages and disadvantages of motility peg integration. Their experience includes every available peg attachment system.
At Ocular Prosthetics, Inc. our team approach includes close communication with your ophthalmologist and oculoplastic surgeon. This will provide you the comfort in knowing you are receiving the highest quality of care available.
