Prosthetics

Many prosthetic eyes

What is a prosthetic eye?

A prosthetic eye is a structure, typically made of hard, plastic acrylic, that is placed inside the eye socket following eye removal (enucleation).

Why prosthetics?

A prosthetic eye is often recommended to patients who have had one or both eyes removed as a result of severe damage or disease and wish to maintain the appearance of an eye.

Should I consider prosthetics?

  • Have you recently had or intend to have one or both eyes removed?
  • Do you wish to maintain the appearance of an eye following eye removal surgery?

If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for prosthetic services. Schedule a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I need prosthetics?

People may consider pursuing prosthetics for any of the following reasons: injury, glaucoma, infections inside the eye, and/or eye tumors.

Is a prosthetic actually a “glass eye”?

In the past “glass eye” was really made of glass. Today, a prosthetic eye is usually made of semi-hard, plastic acrylic. The prosthetic is shaped to your individual need.

Will the prosthetic move like a human eye?

A prosthetic eye moves, but often not as fully or freely as a typical eye. The pupil on a prosthetic does not change with light. So the pupils of the two eyes may appear uneven.
