Abstract

Ocular prosthesis is an artificial replacement of the eye. After enucleation, evisceration and exenteration of the eye, the goal is to replace the missing tissues with an artificial prosthesis and restore the facial symmetry and normal appearance of the anophthalmic patient. Therefore the combined efforts of the ophthalmologist, the plastic surgeon, and the maxillofacial Prosthodontist are essential in order to restore the patient’s quality of life. Custom made prosthesesprovide more esthetic and precise result when compared to stock eye prosthesis. Simplification of the technique with the commonly available materials makes it more ease to make it. This is a case report presenting the fabrication of eye prosthesis in a cost effective manner with a unique impression technique.

 

Key words: Ocular defect, custom made ocular impression, custom made ocular prosthesis.
