Eye Prosthesis with Eyelid Included
Often ocular patients have lost more than just an eye, but also sections of their lids. Due to this patient’s war wound, his superior lid was damaged, leaving the socket much larger than the companion eye. Since some lid movement was present, creating a prosthetic lid (as we often do for orbital patients) was not an option. However, creating an eye prosthesis with the illusion of a lid (complete with shadow) proved successful at providing the patient with a prosthesis that did not appear large, while also being comfortable to the socket and superior lid.
