In phthisis bulbi due to injury or infection patient lose vision and eye become shrunken. Such eye looks very different from the natural eye and patient feels difficulty in public due to the disfigurement. At Art Eye clinic, we offer services of Custom Ocular prosthetics in Delhi, India. An ocular prosthesis or artificial eye as its commonly known is an acrylic eye made after taking the impression of the eye socket. This impression is converted into a master cast to form a dummy eye first. This dummy eye is tried in a patient’s eye to check the size, shape, opening, lids contour & contraction. Once the master cast is verified after the required modifications it is painted exactly according to the patient’s other eye. After lamination & high grade polishing this is dispensed to the patient. It helps the one eyed patients to improve their cosmetic appearance.
In case of anophthalmos, patient’s eye is removed by the surgeon due to infection, severe injury etc. Ideally the surgeon put an orbital implant to cover the volume loss in the eye. This orbital implant helps in maintaining the good shape of the eye, better eye movements and managing the weight of the prosthesis.
