Prosthetic Orbitals with Custom Eyes
An artificial eye or prosthetic eye
with lids may be called an orbital prosthesis. A custom orbital prosthesis is a removable artificial eye prosthetic that artificially restores the eye, eyelids and surrounding bone and skin lost as a result of trauma or surgery. An Ocular Plastic Surgeon performs an Exenteration to remove the entire socket, eyelids, eye, and surrounding tissue.
A custom orbital prosthesis or artificial eye offers an alternative to rehabilitation when surgical reconstruction of an orbital socket cannot be achieved. Orbital prostheses can be attached either through the use of adhesives or craniofacial implants. Orbital prostheses contains an artificial eye that is made from acrylic. The advantage of an orbital prosthesis is that it will protect the socket and underlying tissues from debris and bacteria.
It blends into the face making it look whole once again. An implant retained orbital prosthesis requires surgery for placement of the implants. This process has a healing period of approximately 10-12 weeks. The custom orbital prostheses are made of a medical silicone which is colored to match the natural eye area skin tissue. It is necessary to visit our office for the custom made prosthesis.
