Join anaplastologist Louis Gilbert from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) for a history of ocular prosthetics and watch a demonstration of the seven-step process of creating prosthetic eyes. Gilbert and a team of technicians in the WRNMMC dental lab specialize in producing lifelike facial prosthetics. Whether the patient has lost an eye due to injury or disease, his work helps his patients feel whole again.
