I had the good fortune to meet [personal profile] kestrell at Wiscon, and she introduced me to the old-world artistry of ocular prosthetics.

It turns out one of the three ocular prosthetic makers in Wisconsin is a local hero. The process is fascinating:

Q&A: Dori Hosek found an 'amazing fit' making artificial eyes

I can speak directly to the exquisite details: Kes gave me one of her out-of-date ones and I wear it as a pendant (but only in geeky environs).

This is the ocularist a friend of mine in town goes to, or rather went to until late last year. Absolutely lovely person by all accounts, to the point that there was serious consideration given to her adopting my friend's retiring guide dog. :) I know she was bummed when she found out the practice was being sold!

Three in the entire state of Wisconsin... I did not even realize. Wow.
