Sydney Artificial Eyes routine check-up and maintenance for prosthetic eyes
Prosthetic eye check-ups and polishing are important for maintaining the health and function of your artificial eye. A prosthetic eye, also known as an ocular prosthesis, is a custom-made, artificial replacement for an eye that has been surgically removed.
During a prosthetic eye check-up, your ocularist or ocular prosthetist will carefully examine your artificial eye to ensure that it fits properly and is functioning correctly. This is important because a properly fitting and functioning prosthetic eye can help to maintain the natural appearance and movement of your remaining eye, and can also prevent complications such as infection or irritation.
In addition to checking the fit and function of your prosthetic eye, your doctor or prosthetist may also recommend that your artificial eye be polished. This involves gently buffing the surface of the prosthetic eye to remove any dirt, debris, or other substances that may have accumulated on its surface. Polishing can help to restore the shine and luster of your artificial eye, and can also help to prevent the buildup of bacteria or other microorganisms that can cause infection.
It is important to have regular check-ups and polishing of your prosthetic eye in order to maintain its health and function. This will help to ensure that your artificial eye looks and feels its best, and can help to prevent complications such as infection or irritation.
Your ocularist or ocular prosthetist will be able to provide you with more information about the specific frequency and schedule for check-ups and polishing of your prosthetic eye.
