Ocular Prosthesis is fitted over the disfigured eye either after the trauma or after the surgery for restoration of socket and most importantly for cosmetic appearance. This is made by medical grade plastic (PMMA) which is an inert material and very well tolerated by the surrounding eye tissues.
It is made by taking an impression of the eye socket by silicon polymer. The impression of the eye socket is used to make a wax model to determine the size, shape, opening and centration of the eye. Then the iris button (for 3D appearance) is hand painted from direct observation of the fellow eye. This wax model is used to make a cast (white acrylic) of the prosthesis and iris button is fused in it.
This white acrylic is further colored according to other eye to simulate a natural appearance. It is then laminated with a clear plastic protective coating followed by high grade multi stage polishing before dispensing.
