A Chain of Events - Plastics Creates a Profession and Two New Societies

We are proud to state that we are members of the American Society of Ocularists (ASO).  Although the ASO group is small in number compared to other ancillary factions of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), we are considered to be one of the smallest organized healthcare provider groups in North America, and have gained worldwide recognition.

It is interesting to follow the chain of events that paralleled the formation of the ASO and Jahrling Ocular Prosthetics, and later the formation of a oculoplastic surgical specialty group within the AAO.  It can be summed up in the one magical word.  PLASTIC!  It is the word that Benjamin's uncle told him in the movie, The Graduate!  Please read on.
