The Nicholas Puls ‘3-Step Program’ — Transforming lives in 3 steps

You’ll need to wait about 4 to 6 weeks for your eye socket to heal after surgery. Once you’re ready to visit our artificial eye clinic in Brisbane, the Nicholas Puls ‘3-Step Program’ begins. Whether you’re an adult or a child, the program takes about a week and involves three visits: 

1st Visit — Impression is made, wax fit/shaping the prosthesis and colour matching


2nd Visit — First fit and instructions on how to insert and remove your eye


3rd Visit — Final fit and any adjustments if required

Revisits — When should you revisit Artificial Eyes Queensland? 

Ongoing checkups and prosthetic maintenance are essential to ensuring that your artificial eye remains clean and comfortable to wear, and lasts its expected lifespan. For adults, your prosthesis should last 3 to 5 years. 


Prosthetic eye polishing should take place every 6 to 12 months to remove protein deposits which pose a risk of irritation and can lead to papillary conjunctivitis and other infections. Having your prosthetic eye polished regularly also helps to correct issues such as difficulty blinking, unnatural eyelid motion and excessive discharge. Regular polishing also helps to keep your artificial eye looking its best and maintains its lustre and natural appearance. 


When you make an appointment at our artificial eye clinic in Brisbane or another location in Queensland or Northern NSW, our experienced prosthetic eye specialist will: 

 

  • Make sure your artificial eye is sitting comfortably and is correctly aligned

  • Restore the high polish to your prosthetic eye

  • Check the health of the eye socket and surrounding tissue

  • Help you review your eye maintenance protocols

  • Provide expert maintenance to lengthen your artificial eye’s lifespan 

Don’t hesitate to contact Artificial Eyes Queensland if you have any questions about your prosthetic eye, require an adjustment to increase comfort or need reassurance that all is fine.
