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
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.
