Newcastle Eye Centre can organise a new prosthetic eye using local and Sydney based eye makers, your Ophthalmologist will provide you more details if required.
A prosthetic eye can help improve the appearance of people who have lost an eye to injury or disease.
The prosthetic eye includes:
- oval, whitish outer shell finished to duplicate the white color of the other eye
- round, central portion painted to look like the iris and pupil of the other eye
Implanting a prosthetic eye (ocular prosthesis) is almost always recommended after an eye is surgically removed due to damage or disease.
