Eye Prosthesis

An eye prosthesis, also known as an artificial eye, is a medical device that is used to replace an eye that has been removed due to injury or disease. The prosthesis is custom-made to fit the individual's socket and is designed to match the size and color of the person's remaining eye. It is made of a hard material, such as acrylic or glass, and is held in place by the surrounding eye tissue and a thin attachment called a conformer. The prosthesis does not restore vision, but it can help to improve the appearance of the eye socket and restore symmetry to the face.
