Custom Ocular Prosthesis

An artificial eye made of acrylic that replaces an absent natural eye following a loss due to disease or trauma. The prosthesis fits over an orbital implant and under the eyelids after a healing period of 4 – 6 weeks. Our eyes are custom fitted and fabricated to match the specific details of the individual patient’s natural globe or eye socket with various impression techniques. Iris, pupil, scleral tone, and vascular pattern are matched as closely as possible to the fellow eye.

Scleral Cover Shells

A flush-fitting, opaque, acrylic scleral cover fitted over an existing damaged eye. Iris, pupil, scleral tint, and vascular pattern are hand duplicated in detail to match the fellow eye.

Surgical Conformers

A clear plastic shell/shape used to prevent collapse or closing of a cavity, vessel, or opening during surgical repair, and/or post-operative healing.

Prostheses for Congenital Anomalies

  • Congenital Anophthalmos:

    A true absence of the eyeball existing at birth. The prostheses fabricated for these cases are usually a series of progressively larger therapeutic conformers to help expand the patient’s socket and bony orbit as growth occurs.

  • Congenital Microphthalmos:

    An abnormally small, blind eyeball existing at birth. The prostheses fabricated for these cases are usually a series of progressively larger therapeutic conformers to help expand the patient’s socket and bony orbit as growth occurs.

We can create a prosthesis that is semi transparent so that if the patient has some light perception they can still feel comfortable navigating without being concerned about the way they look. Here is an example of the prosthesis.

Custom Ocular Prosthesis with Dilating Pupils

A breakthrough in artificial eye technology that’s helping people all over the world. It’s a special prosthetic eye and was created in Oklahoma by the La Fuente Prosthetic Center in Midtown Oklahoma City.

The man behind the design is owner Henry La Fuente. After 30 years of research, La Fuente has created the first dilating prosthetic eye. The prosthetic has a tiny disk inside. The patient swipes a magnet over the eye to change the pupil’s size.

Orbital Exonerations- The prosthesis is moulded to the underlying socket and may include components to close any communication with the nose or sinuses. Fixation of the prosthesis may be with tissue glue or it may be mounted on spectacles.

An alternative method of prosthesis fixation is the use of titanium osseointegrated implants to which the prosthesis is attached by magnets or clips.  he technique was pioneered by Brånemark in Sweden and it has proven to be a very successful method of fixation for facial and other prostheses.
