Eye

Orbital

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.
