What Our Patients Are Saying


Q: How is the artificial eye held in?

A: An artificial eye is held in place by the eyelids and an appropriate fit on the back side of the prosthesis.
A: Yes, most prosthetics move. The two biggest factors are the movement of the tissue in the anophthalmic socket and the fit of the prosthesis.
A: As it is for cosmetic look, there is no such kind of facility started in India.
A:The primary reasons of replacing an artificial eye can be the change of tissue in the socket, anatomical growth and acrylic breakdown. Prosthetic in children tends to last for 3 – 4 years due to growth spurts before any replacement is required.
A: Following an enucleation or evisceration surgery, a patient is fit with a clear conformer, a curved shape that helps form the inside of the eye socket. This first fitting is usually done at the time of surgery by the surgeon.

Ideally, we see patients 1-2 weeks after the surgery. This visit allows us to meet with the patient & family, explain our process and ease anxiety about the restoration. During the initial visit, we exchange the conformer, replacing the generic post-op conformer with a custom-fit conformer.

The patient should visit after every 2 weeks in order to monitor healing and the conformers should be changed once the swelling starts reducing. For the final fit and movement of the prosthesis, regular visits are important.

About 6-8 weeks after the surgery, when the swelling has reduced enough for a tissue impression, and we begin the prosthesis. How long does it take to make an artificial eye?

It usually takes four appointments to make an artificial eye. An eye can be completed in 1 or 2 day, depending on one's preferred schedule.
A: We recommend a polish every year for most patients. This visit allows us to remove the built-up protein, bacteria and scratches on the prosthetic surface. We also examine the fit of the prosthesis and the condition of the anophthhalmic socket.
A: A prosthetic can help the proper development of the facial structures by adding necessary volume and pressure. Orbital tissue growth, fissure opening and size and shape of eyelids is maintained appropriately with the presence of prosthesis.

How to Handle Your Artificial Eyes

After the completion of your new artificial eye, one of your major questions on your mind is how to take care of your prosthesis and the best way to handle and clean it. The good news is that your prosthesis can easily be removed and replaced with some practice. Your artificial eye is held in place by the lower and upper eyelids and fit to the interior of the eye socket. Most patients wear their prosthesis full time, removing only occasionally to clean, while other patients remove their prosthesis at night. Wearing full time is ideal.

Before you get started with your prosthetic eye care, always remember to use clean hands when handling your prosthesis. Check your surroundings to make sure the prosthesis won't be damaged or lost if it is accidently dropped. The prosthesis should be removed only if it is necessary to clean or as often as directed. Too much handling can cause irritation to your socket and excess drainage.

Removing an artificial eye


removing an artifical eye with fingers and suction cup

Pull down the lower eyelid with index finger, look up and slide finger towards the ear.

Allow the prosthesis to slide out over the lower lid. Gently remove prosthesis with free hand.


removing an artificial eye with fingers and suction cup

Open your eyelids, and then the suction cup should be applied to the prosthesis and then the handle should be squeezed.

The lower lid has to be pulled down carefully with your fingers. The prosthesis should be titled up over your lower lid. Then the suction cup should be squeezed in order to release the handle.

Inserting an artificial eye


removing an artifical eye with fingers and suction cup

Lift upper lid with index finger to create an opening. Gently slide top edge of prosthesis under upper lid.

Release upper lid once prosthesis is in. The lower lid should be pulled down and then blink continuously to set prosthesis into position.


inserting an artificial eye with finger and suction cup

Suction cup should be attached to the prosthesis with the help of squeezing handle. The upper lid of your eye should be lifted up and the top edge of the prosthesis should be slided under the upper lid.

Release upper lid and pull down lower lid to seat prosthesis. Squeeze suction cup handle to release. Blink eyelids.


Follow same handling instructions as artificial eyes.

It may be helpful to look down while removing and placing the scleral shell.

Wear as long as comfortable, removing at night if necessary.

Cleaning your artificial eye

Over time, the surface of the prosthesis collects protein and debris. Taking good care of your prosthesis helps to ensure a healthy socket and increase the life of your prosthesis.

Some patients find that removing and cleaning their prosthesis every day is necessary, while others are able to wear it for a couple weeks or longer before cleaning.

Cleaning the prosthesis every 2-3 weeks is ideal

Cleaning of an artificial eye

Wash hands with soap and water.

Use water to rinse and softly scrub the prosthesis with your fingers, removing built-up protein and debris.

Only use baby shampoo when necessary and rinse thoroughly.

The artificial eye should be dried with the help of soft tissue and apply circular motion to the eye to give it a polished look.

Soak the eye with a warm wet tissue to remove build up proteins from your eyelids and eyelashes. It is also possible to clean the front of your prosthesis this way, without removing the prosthesis.

A professional polish is the only way to remove the protein attachments and bacterial infiltration. We recommend having your prosthesis polished every year, depending on your body chemistry. Please call today to schedule an appointment if your last polish was over 1 year ago.


Always use clean hands when handling your prosthesis.

Check your surrounds to make sure the prosthesis won't be damaged or lost if it is accidentally dropped.

Irritation & excess drainage can be caused due to excessive handling, so the prosthesis should be removed only as directed by ocularist.

Outward wiping of eyelids can dislodge the prosthesis, so always close the eyelids and wipe towards nose.

Try to position your chin toward the person you are conversing with. Practice moving your head and shoulders, not just your eyes.

To protect your natural eye, use nicely fit glasses with polycarbonate lenses.

Do not store your eye in tissue, as it could accidentally be discarded.

Do not clean the prosthesis with any solvents, hand sanitizer or alcohol, as these chemicals may damage the prosthesis and your socket.


A professional polish provides comfort, a more natural appearance, and removes scratches, protein deposits and bacteria from the surface of the prosthesis. An examination will also be performed to ensure your tissue is healthy and your prosthesis is fitting correctly. This appointment also allows your ocularist to examine the orbit, ensuring that your tissue is healthy and your prosthesis is fitting correctly.

Professional polishing of prosthesis should be done every year.

Polishing of prosthesis is needed (required) when some of these symptoms occur:

Irritation or Itchiness caused in the eyelids

Increased drainage from prosthesis or feeling discomfort

Changes are visible in the appearance of eyelids (prosthesis)

Please contact us with any questions regarding the fit and care of your prosthesis.


Artificial eyes do need to be replaced. Eye sockets change shape over time, affecting comfort, movement, and appearance. The surface of the prosthesis also breaks down, resulting in an unhealthy formation of bacteria on the prosthesis.

An artificial eye should be replaced approximately every five years.

Some symptoms that may occur when one is in need of a replacement are:

increased drainage

dryness or discomfort

recurring infections

droopiness of the eyelids

changes in appearance

Please contact us with any questions regarding the fit and care of your prosthesis.


Extreme dryness, irritation and difficulty in blinking is occasionally experienced by the artificial eye wearers. Moisture from prosthesis tends to evaporate due to adverse weather, dust, wind and air-conditioning. Allergies and body changes can also contribute to dryness.

To apply a lubricant or eye drop to your prosthesis, place a drop on a clean finger and swipe across the prosthesis. Blink a few times, then close your eye and blot your skin with a tissue to remove any extra product. Silicone lubricants can be applied as needed, begin by applying morning and night. Water-based eye drops can also be applied as needed, typically every 2-3 hours.

We can recommend a variety of products to alleviate these symptoms and promote comfort. Please contact us.
