Our custom ocular prosthetics are made from high quality acrylic. Made all in one day, the prosthesis shape is formed using an impression made of the socket, with the front curvature determining the shape of the lids. The iris is hand painted to match the sighted eye and the acrylic is finely polished to provide the most comfortable fit.
After the initial fitting a check up appointment is scheduled around a month later. At this appointment the ocularist and patient examine the prosthesis, both in fit and looks to see if any further fine tuning is needed. The shape and color can be adjusted to provide the most natural appearance and comfort.
