An orbital prosthesis restores the eye as well as the area surrounding it. This prosthesis is among the most complex type of facial restoration to design and fit, because it is a multi-component device and must match the subtle modeling and coloration of the orbital area. Eyeglasses are a prerequisite to the prosthesis design. Lightweight frames, the lines of which coincide closely with the outline of the defect, are best. Re-establishing natural symmetry to the face is immensely gratifying to both the patient and the surgeon.
