Family owned and operated business-recently featured by the New York Historical Society as a family run business in operation over 150 years.
 
Mager and Gougelman, Inc. is a family owned business founded in 1851. Today it has become more and more difficult to find small family owned businesses which combine their heart and soul into the services they provide. There are numerous large conglomerates with employees “performing their job only.” These employees have no stake in the companies they work for and, therefore may not go that extra mile. Mager and Gougelman, Inc. prides itself with the fact that the fourth generation is now hard at work and maintaining the same pride, service, and care which has kept the family and company a leader in the field of ocularistry for over 150 years.

When our company was founded by Peter Gougelmann, glass was the material used in making artificial eyes. During World War II, plastic was implemented into eye prosthetics and became more widely used than glass in the fabrication of ocular prostheses over the following decades. Since the first plastic artificial eyes were developed, we have devoted our efforts to provide an eye that gives the wearer all of the advantages of glass eye techniques plus all the advantages of plastic. We feel that we can now offer a plastic artificial eye superior to any.

We shall continue to work in cooperation with surgeons and the medical field to develop implants and artificial eyes which have every possible advantage in comfort, cosmetic appearance, motility, and durability. We currently specialize in the following:
