Physician Testimonials

“For several years, I have had the pleasure of working with the Henderlites at Southeastern Ocularists. Their custom ocular prosthetics are among the best in the country and certainly the best in the region. Their attention to detail combined with their level of expertise results in a high-quality, natural appearance. The level of compassion and professionalism that they have shown to my patients is unparalleled. I would encourage and recommend anyone in need of an artificial eye to consult with this remarkable group of artisans.”

“I have worked with Bob and Erin Henderlite for over 7 years. I have found them to be very caring and helpful with patients. Both take extra time to explain the entire fitting process in detail and do whatever is necessary to make all patients feel comfortable. They follow-up with every patient and with me and keep me informed at every step of the process. I will continue to refer patients to them and look forward to many years of sharing patients.”

I cannot tell you the difference the scleral shell has made. I feel more self assured and confident. I went to my retina specialist yesterday to show off your work, and the first thing he said was, “Wow, what eye is it?”. It is really remarkable the work that you do. I would not hesitate for a second to refer someone to your office.
