Although the prosthetic rehabilitation may be enhanced with the use of implants, which can coordinate with the movements of the natural eye, they are not always possible or feasible.
The use of custom-made ocular prosthesis has been a boon to the patients who cannot afford the implant placement. Ocular prosthesis is an artificial replacement of the bulb of the eye.
Multidisciplinary management and a team approach are essential in providing accurate and effective rehabilitation and follow-up care for the patient. An ocular prosthesis is fabricated to restore the structure, function, and cosmetics of the defects created by such conditions.
At Modern Art Eye Ocular Prosthetic, the highly trained ocularist can provide you with the knowledge and compassion you deserve.
The goal of Modern Art Eye is the achievement of the best quality of life for patients and their families. Eyes are generally the first features of the face to be noticed. Loss of an eye is a traumatic event which has a crippling effect on the psychology of the patient. Several ocular and orbital disorders require surgical intervention that may result in ocular defects. An ocular prosthesis is fabricated to restore the structure, function, and cosmetics of the defects created by such conditions.
Although an implant eye prosthesis has a superior outcome, due to economic factors it may not be a feasible option for all patients. Therefore, a custom-made ocular prosthesis is a good alternative. This case report presents a palliative treatment for a patient with an enucleated eye by fabricating a custom ocular prosthesis which improved his psychological, physical, social, functional, emotional needs.
