Losing an eye can be painful, making an eye need not be
Losing an eye, or living without one, can be painful and traumatic. Disfigurement of an eye can be both physically and emotionally challenging; To address and overcome these changes, we strive to restore the damage caused by disease and trauma by creating an artificial eye at our prosthetic centre. Custom made ocular prosthesis can bring a sea change to the life of a person.
What is the process?
We at The Eye Foundation make every effort to ensure each patient receives the best possible ocular prosthesis and cosmetic result. With advanced techniques, we focus on matching contours and folds of the eye lids, amount of movement and color of the natural eye to create a prosthetic eye.
Ocular Prosthesis also known as artificial eye is a combination of art and science which deals with fitting & fabrication of custom ocular prosthesis working closely with ophthalmic plastic surgeon and ophthalmologist.
