SNG Prosthetic Eye Institute
One of the leading centers in Florida for custom artificial eye care
SNG Prosthetic Eye Institute was founded in 1989 and has become one of the leading centers in Florida for custom artificial eye care. We are very well aware of what you may be feeling. We assure you that that we will do everything we can to make you feel as comfortable as possible. We will fully explain everything we do and will happily answer any questions you may have.
We meet with approximately 150 clients weekly. All of them wear at least one prosthesis while some require two. If you would like to talk to one of our clients, we will be happy to match you up with someone whose situation is similar to yours. We feel this is the best way possible to make your initial adjustment period less stressful.
Scott Marsh –Scott was born in Boynton Beach, Florida and graduated from Florida Atlantic University with a double bachelor’s degree. His curiosity in fabricating and fitting of the prosthetic eyes and his passion for art led him to train and become the Ocularist he is today. He prides himself on his dedication to the field of Ocularistry and has developed a custom Digital Iris Technology that will soon be available to all patients free of charge. In his free time he enjoys spending time with his two sons and wife. Among other activities he is very active in his church and volunteers at the church and community out reach programs. He is an extremely family oriented individual and that compassion is reflective in his approach to patient care. He makes every effort to ensure that every patient feels at home and comfortable during their visit.
