Abstract

The unfortunate loss or absence of an eye may be caused by a congenital defect, irreparable trauma, tumor, sympathetic ophthalmia, or the need for histologic confirmation of a suspected diagnosis. Early rehabilitation with suitable prosthesis is recommended to ease the mind of the afflicted. An ocular prosthesis is a maxillofacial prosthesis that artificially replaces an eye missing as a result of trauma, surgery, or congenital absence. A custom ocular prosthesis has advantage of close adaptation to the tissue bed, provides maximum comfort and restores full physiological function to the accessory organs of the eye.
