  • “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!”

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

    – Sheri Colbert

  • “My name is Karan and I lost my left eye 33 years ago with cancer. As a child, people always told me I had the prettiest big eyes, so when this happened it was devastating for so many reasons. LeGrand Associates just made my 4th eye and I can tell you in over 25 years and me getting older, I have NEVER had anyone look at me and say “Hey, do you have a glass eye?” I have always been so pleased with their work, it has made my life so much better and easier because no one knew! I am forever grateful to them for their work and the service they have provided. I feel so blessed to have Dave taking care of me!”
