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.
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 eyelids, amount of movement, and color of the natural eye to create a prosthetic eye at an affordable cost.
Ocular Prosthesis known as the artificial eye is a combination of art and science which deals with fitting & fabrication of custom ocular prosthesis working closely with ophthalmic plastic surgeons and ophthalmologists. This artificial eye is implanted in patients who have lost their eyes due to various causes such as trauma, surgery, cancer, or in patients with shrunken damaged eyes, etc. These conditions lead to cosmetic disfigurement of the face which impacts the patients psychologically and acts as a social stigma. The glass eye or artificial eyeball cosmetic rehabilitation for the patients through the implantation of ocular prosthesis helps in restoring the patients’ confidence by improving their external appearance. The Ocular prosthesis are fitted behind the eyelids over a prosthetic eye or an orbital implant placed following surgical removal of the eye at affordable cost.
