Positive results for a brighter future
At 5-years-old, Isabelle looks forward to the chocolate frog she receives on her visits with ocularist, Nicholas Puls, who has been caring for her artificial eye. Her left eye was removed after her Mum noticed what she described as a “ghost” in Isabelle’s eyes. It was eventually discovered to be multiple tumours.
Diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, one eye could not be saved. That’s when leading ocularist Nicholas Puls entered Isabelle’s and her family’s lives. He carefully crafted a prosthetic to perfectly match this bright little girl’s remaining eye. Since then, Nicholas Puls has been there to support Isabelle with a new eye as she has grown, and to regularly service and maintain her shiny-eyed smiles.
My recent eye was made by Nick Puls. Nick is a breath of fresh air. His attention to detail was not only directed towards my eye but towards my personal psychological journey as well. He made me feel that I mattered. Nick put in as much time as I needed. Not once did he ever make me feel that I couldn’t ask for further changes because he altered my prosthetic eye to whatever standard perfection was for me, and that meant as long as it took – hours, days, weeks or months

Nick made me feel and look like a normal person by giving me a new eye. He did such an incredible job that I don’t even know it’s there. It is very comfortable and my friends don’t know which eye is the artificial one. Nick was very professional and showed a lot of empathy. My family and I will be forever grateful to him for everything he has done for me. Thank you, Nick.

My wife has had an artificial eye for 50+ years and throughout that period has had several different versions, starting with a glass blown one. She says that this one that Nick has made is the most comfortable she has ever worn. Nick was unrelenting in getting the pupil size and colour match perfect and she highly recommends his professional services. Coupled to that, Nick is a gentleman and a perfectionist with a ton of patience.
