What is an ocularist?

An ocularist is a carefully trained technician skilled in {the} arts of fitting, shaping, and painting ocular prostheses. In addition to creating it, {the} ocularist shows {the} patient how to handle and care for {the} prosthesis, and provides long-term care through periodic examinations.

Motility with {the} MEDPOR® MCP Motility Coupling Post

  • Motility can also be enhanced by coupling {the} internal implant with {the} external eye prosthesis by using {the} MCP (Motility Coupling Post) System. This simple procedure can be performed by a surgeon in their office surgical area.
  • The MEDPOR® MCP Coupling Post, a system for enhanced prosthetic eye motility, has been developed to meet {the} desires of ophthalmologists and their anophthalmic patients who have been reconstructed with MEDPOR® Enucleation Shapes.
  • The central feature of this motility enhancing system is a threaded, medical grade titanium alloy post that might be easily placed in {the} patient's reconstructed socket following sufficient time for vascularization of {the} MEDPOR® Enucleation Shape. The back of {the} prosthetic eye is then modified to accept {the} rounded head of {the} MCP. The MCP might be introduced in a simple office procedure under local anesthesia, without {the} need of a power drill.
  •  
  • The threaded post design allows for individualized height adjustment and prevents peg fallout which has been seen in other coupling systems. Excellent tissue interface has been observed between {the} conjunctiva and {the} titanium post.
  • The opportunity of motility enhancement, {the} favorable biocompatible structure, and {the} physical characteristics of MEDPOR® Enucleation Shapes provide {the} ophthalmologist and {the} patient an attractive surgical option for enucleation procedures.
