An ocular prosthesis also referred to as an artificial eye is used after a surgical procedure called and enucleation to replace the eye that has been removed.


A scleral shell is a thin ocular prosthesis that is fitted over a small or disfigured natural eye. It is similar to a contact lens, but it covers the entire front surface of the eye.


Therapeutic conformers are used to manipulate tissue in order to return the socket to a more natural size and shape.  They are commonly used in creating socket growth for children and to reverse the effects of socket contracture.
