Our Process & Making Your new Prosthetic Eye
When making new or replacement prosthetic eyes, our skilled ocularists take a very collaborative approach with our patients, to ensure we provide the best product possible, while also supporting our patients through any questions they may have, and including them in the fitting and fabrication process of making the new artificial eye.
When making a new or replacement prosthetic eye, our ocularist will see the patient over two consultations, usually one week apart.
The first consultation is the longer of the two, and involved our Ocularist taking an impression of the patients eye socket using a specialist medical impression material.
Once the impression is made, our ocularist works on the fit and comfort of the new prosthesis, to ensure the new prosthesis will be comfortable, and we can achieve optimal movement of the prosthetic.
Our Ocularist will then work on colour matching and painting the eye to match the patients existing eye, to fabricate an exact match which is identical to the existing eye. We match the iris colour, veining and sclera colour to the patients existing eye.
Once we achieve all of these, and assist our patient with any questions they may have, our Ocularist will move on the manufacturing process, which takes approximately one week.
The second consultation takes place approximately one week after the first (initial) consultation with the ocularist. The second consultation is also known as the fitting consultation, and is when the Ocularist will fit the eye and show our patient how to insert and remove the new prosthetic eye.
Our Ocularist will also show the patient how to care for and maintain their new prosthetic eye, and how to clean the artificial eye.
