Ocularists Association of Southern Africa (OASA)

An Ocularist is a trained professional who fits and manufactures Custom Designed Ocular Prostheses (artificial eyes). An Ocularist is also qualified to fit Scleral or Haptic Shells (an artificial eye shell which fits over a blinded eye). The Ocularist's domain is the eye socket and blinded ptisicul eyes.

The association represents the co-ordinating body for disciplines related to the rehabilitation of patients suffering from all forms of Ocular and Orbital trauma resulting in either blindness or loss of either one or both eyes.

The Ocularists aim is, through an eye prosthesis, not only to restore lost orbital and ocular contours and function, but also to buoy the spirit of the patient.

The association aims to endeavor to sustain and further develop the working relationship held with Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and Maxilo-Facial Surgeons in order to achieve the best possible treatment in holistic rehabilitation of patients.

The Ocularists Association of Southern Africa makes use of the Optometric Ombudsman, care of the Executive Officer of the South African Optometric Association, Mr Harry Rosen.
They are available to both Ocularist and patient alike in order to maintain an open and honest work ethic in Ocularistry.
