Joseph A. LeGrand Sr.

"He Cared" - Bernard Orsini (long time patient of Joe LeGrand, Sr.)

LeGrand Associates was founded in 1953 by Joseph LeGrand, Sr., who wore an artificial eye himself and dedicated his life to advancing the art and science of ocularistry. His innovations to the making of ocular prostheses are a part of the history of the artificial eye. However, he is remembered most by his patients and his associates for his warmth, compassion and sense of humor.

The empirical impression technique, developed by Joe LeGrand, Sr. and his colleagues, makes the impression the last step in the fitting of the wax shape - after the patient has had time to get comfortable and relaxed.

  • “After receiving the eye, I was at a rest stop of I-64 and just stared at people to get a reaction and no one gave me a second look!”

    – Sheri Colbert

  • “Joe LeGrand was great! He was very patient with my 10 month old who needs two prosthetics. She didn’t cry once and they came out great! People don’t even question they actually compliment how nice her eyes are while we’re out and about lol I would recommend him to anyone!”

    – Kiara Scott

  • “When we started our journey with Arrayah, our little “Ray of Hope”, we didn’t know what we would get to experience. A year into our cancer journey we found out that she was going to have to have her eye removed. After asking who we might consider working with, it was suggested that we talk with LeGrand Associates and Joseph LeGrand. When we met Joe for the first time, soon after our daughter lost her right eye, we found him to be very understanding and he did a great job of matching a very complicated blue. He also was a great help in training us in the process of removing the prosthesis as well as placing the prosthesis in the socket. Not only does he do excellent work, but he’s also compassionate and tender as he works with our child. The process of taking the prosthesis out and placing it back in the socket can be scary for a child, but we have always been impressed with how well he helps it to not be scary for our daughter.”

    – Ashley, father of Arrayah

  • “I wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the 14 years of service you have provided. Your office staff has always been very accommodating and responsive with scheduling. In today’s world of shortcuts, it is nice to have a friendly voice on the other end of the line. Your work is appreciated as well, I have never had any trouble with the prosthetic in any way, it has been flawless. Craftsmanship is something I value and yours is excellent, I am looking forward to the continuation of our relationship.”

    – Alan

  • “Our 14-year old daughter has been a patient of Joe LeGrand’s since she was diagnosed with microopthalmia at birth. We could not have asked for a more professional, caring, or wonderful patient care provider than Joe. He turned a devastating diagnosis into something that we, as a family, have been able to deal with, thanks to his compassion and medical competence. We are lucky to have him! The Rotmans thank you, Joe!”

    – Angie

  • “I have been a patient at LeGrand Associates for over 40 years and when I say perfection I am telling the truth! The attention to detail, color and shape is beyond expectations! David LeGrand is a master ocularist! He is very patient, kind and a down to earth person. You see, I am a very picky person, but David always takes his time catering to my needs. I thank God for his patience and taking the time with me over the years. If you need an ocularist, he is the one to come to!”

    – R. Holloman
