Our mission at YOP is to fit and fabricate the most realistic artificial eye with out any additional surgical interventions. We value your time but will not sacrifice the quality to be done faster.
We work with ALL insurance companies. With the number of plans and companies available, coverage can be confusing. We offer a free consultation. At that time we research your insurance for coverage.
At YOP we we use the "Modified Impression Technique" with the Iowa Painting Shell. In our opinion this is the best way to build a CUSTOM artificial eye. With an impression we start with the curves your socket naturally has as apposed to forcing a pre made shape into your socket.
