Abstract

The eye is a vital organ not only in terms of vision but also being an important component of facial expression [1]. Loss or absence of a part of the face especially eye can cause severe physical and emotional problems [2].Loss of eye could be because of different eye diseases, malignancies, congenital defect, trauma, chemical injuries, painful blind eye or sympathetic ophthalmia [3].

Several stock ocular prosthesis are readily available in the market but Custom-made ocular prosthesis has many advantages and looks realistic. The complaint like discharge, itchiness, redness is more in stock eye prosthesis. Cosmetically compromising and movement is less due to improper fitting, shape and size. Impression taking in the custom-made eye prosthesis plays the vital role in shape, size of ocular prosthesis and comfortability of the patient while wearing it. Custom made ocular prosthesis provides better fit and improved exquisite, but they are more time-consuming and needs more patience and expertise [5]. This case report demonstrates innovative technique for fabricating custom ocular prosthesis with manual scleral and iris painting using coloured pigments which provides delicately satisfactory result long lasting with comfortable and better fit.
