Abstract

A technique for the use of modified prefabricated eyes was described. When properly used, many of the limitations attributed to prefabricated eyes can be overcome. This technique allows the proper positioning of the iris while simultaneously recording an impression of the ocular defect tissue bed. This technique permits the finished ocular prosthesis to generate an equal distribution of pressure throughout the defect, while increasing its movement due to excellent adaptation to the walls of the socket. Although a custom-eye technique may still be necessary for some, most patients can be treated with the modified prefabricated-eye technique with excellent results.
