Abstract

Throughout history, the human eye has been mentioned by authors as the most precious of gifts. It unveils the entire outer world to our consciousness, gives life, expression and dignity to the face. The loss of an eye therefore has always been regarded as the greatest misfortune. Disfi gurement resulting from loss of an eye can cause signifi cant visual, psychological as well as social consequences. The aim of the rehabilitation procedure is to return the patient to the society with a normal appearance, comfort and reasonable mobility of ocular prosthesis. Much stress is given to the accurate duplication of natural colour, contour, size and ocular orientation which will provide realism and symmetry for patients and contribute to enhanced tissue health of the anophthalmic socket.
