Abstract

The eyes play an important role in determining a person's facial profile. It causes distress to the patient when his or her eyes are lost. In order to enhance self-esteem and social acceptance, eye prosthesis restores the appearance of the face. There are various materials and techniques used in the fabrication of an ocular prosthesis. Among the advantages of custom ocular prostheses over stock eye prostheses are better eyelid movements, even pressure distribution, which reduces trauma to the tissues, and improved fit, comfort, and aesthetics. An ocular prosthesis can be customized to appear more natural by customizing the size, shape, and color of the iris, pupil, and sclera. This article illustrates the rehabilitation of eyes using custom-made eye cells.

Keywords: Eye cell, prosthesis, alginate, light body, ocular defect
