With prosthetic eyes, it’s never ‘one and done’. Eye sockets change over time, so your prosthesis may not fit like it once did. Also, like other body parts, artificial eyes are subject to normal wear and tear with age. So, for adults, we recommend replacing your artificial eye every three to five years (this can vary depending on your comfort level and the health of your eye socket).
For infants and young children, time frames are different, based on their eye conditions and growth. When it’s time for a replacement, we provide bespoke, handpainted ocular prosthetics custom-made for you, cosmetic and scleral shells, and postoperative conformers.
