OCULAR PROSTHESIS

OCULAR PROSTHESIS

A prosthetic eye is a handmade artificial eye used to replace the absence of a natural eye.  It is generally made of hard, plastic acrylic and it shaped like a shell.

  • THONEH’s ocular prosthetic clinic is staffed by an ocularsist who is technically skilled in fitting, shaping and painting ocular prostheses for patients who have lost their eye.
  • The prostheses are constructed in-house and the patient is counselled on how to handle and care for them.
  • Long-term care through periodic examination is recommended to ensure optimum aesthetic and fit.
