Making an artificial eye is a critical process. It requires thorough knowledge of anatomy, ophthalmology and polymer chemistry, as well as creativity and artistic talent. First, an impression of the eye socket is taken and the shape is recreated in wax. It is then inserted in the eye to assess the fit. The wax model is finally replicated in acrylic.
The artificial eye is made from medical grade polymethyl-metha-acrylate (PMMA). It is an exact replica of the companion eye - it looks natural and moves at will. Biologically inert and safe natural pigments and threads are used for the artificial eye to match the color of the natural eye. Even minute details like small red blood vessels are faithfully duplicated. The final stage is a clear coating, which helps keep the color intact.
An ocular prosthesis minimizes the possible discrepancy between the compromised and healthy sides, thus contributing to balance and harmony of the facial development. Hence, the installation of an ocular prosthesis still during childhood adds an inestimable psychological and social contribution to the physical benefit in the patient's global rehabilitation. The extra effort and time put into fabrication of custom-made ocular prostheses has been a boon to patients who cannot afford other alternatives, including implants, and ensures a better drape of lid tissues, and provides a superior natural appearance to both patient and the observer.
